REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



As the work of the Infants' Hospital is about to be transferred 
to the new Memorial Buildingon Van Dyke St., certain changes 
must necessarily be made in the administration. 

The Medical and Surgical Out-patient Departments have been 
closed, as the out-patients in the future will be taken care of by 
the Out-patient Department of the new Children's Hospital which 
is in immediate juxtaposition to the memorial building. 

The Medical Director requests all who wish to help in the 
furnishings of the new Hospital to send their gifts to him at 197 
Commonwealth Ave., Boston. It is hoped that contributions 
both large and small will be given for this purpose. 

The Infants' Hospital on Blossom St. was closed on October 
1st, as it was necessary to prepare for the opening of the new 
building. 

It is also hoped that all the friends of this old and needed 
charity will continue their benefactions and interest in the new 
building. 

The new hospital building will afford excellent opportunities 
for the Post-graduate course for Nurses, and the School for Nur- 
sery Maids will be continued. 

THOMAS MORGAN ROTCH, 

Medical Director.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



The new memorial building was opened for a few babies on 
March 3, 1914. By March 21 one large ward was filled with ba- 
bies, and soon after that the Clarence John Blake Research Ward 
was opened for paying cases. By April 1st, the full complement 
of nurses and nursemaids was enrolled. Since that time up to 
January 1, 303 babies have been received in the wards. 

The need for additional beds for sick babies is pressing. Omit- 
ting the summer accommodations furnished by the Floating Hospi- 
tal, there are only sixty-six beds now available for sick babies in 
the city of Boston.* 

During the summer months the Infants' Hospital was compelled 
to refuse admission to two sick babies every day on account of lack 
of accommodations, and now the number has increased to three. 
At this rate, we are unable to take between 700 and 900 babies 
each year. 

Our second large ward, temporarily being used by the National 
Civic League for the making of surgical supplies to be shipped to 
Europe, is equipped and ready for twenty extra babies. Given the 
funds, we could open it immediately, and in a week or ten days it 
would be filled with babies needing the attention that only a hospi- 
tal can give. 

We are now training nurses and nursery maids, as in the past. 
Arrangements have been made with the Faulkner Hospital in Ja- 
maica Plain, and with the New England Baptist Hospital, whereby 
two nurses from each institution are taken in each of our courses 
for nurses. One nurse also comes from the Deaconess Hospital for 
each course. 

At present, our nursing force consists of the Head Nurse, five 
undergraduates, and one post-graduate. Ten nursery maids are 
being trained for six months' periods in the Hospital. The demand 

* A few extra beds are available for surgical cases. 



6 

for places in these classes is very large, and we have a waiting list 
of nearly one hundred. There are many more applications for these 
nursery maids when they are graduated than we can fill. 

In this connection it should be noted that the Massachusetts Ba- 
bies' Hospital, the only other institution in New England that did 
this work, closed its doors in June last. 

Our new building was planned not only for the care of sick ba- 
bies, but also as a model for the instruction of the public, and but 
little provision was made for private patients. Owing, however, 
to the lack of funds, it was found imperative to increase our income 
by the admission of a number of paying patients. To accommodate 
these, it was necessary to use the model nursery, the premature 
ward and the House Officer's quarters, and to make certain other 
rearrangements in the Hospital. By this policy it has been possi- 
ble to increase to a very considerable degree the amount of money 
received from patients, so that where the sum previously ranged 
from $300 to $700 a year, since our opening up to January 1, 1915 
we have taken in over $2,500. 

I need not say that any reputable physician in the community 
may send his patients into our private rooms and keep them under 
his own charge. 

The Hospital is now beginning to show activities in all the de- 
partments which Dr. Rotch planned. Our Medical Staff is giving 
a lar^e amount of instruction in the wards, lecture room and milk 
laboratory, and we are in close co-operation with the Pediatric De- 
partment of the Harvard Medical School. 

A course of lectures and demonstrations to mothers in regard to 
the care of infants and preparation of food is now being given, and 
a second course is planned to start when the first ends. 

The scientific work of the Hospital is described in the report of 
the Physician. 

Several courses in preventive pediatrics were successfully organ- 
ized and carried out by the Director of that Department during the 
summer months. 

The X-ray Department has been organized and very successfully 
operated, and has added greatly to the efficiency of the Hospital. 



One of the great advances during the year is the establishment 
of the Social Service Department, of which a report will be found. 
This Department insures that each baby discharged from the Hos- 
pital will be followed up. 

Our sincere thanks are due to the Ladies' Aid Committee not only 
for their work in organizing an entertainment last spring and for 
collecting a considerable sum of money in the fall months, but for 
the activities of their various committees and their general and great 
interest in the Hospital. 

Last April a Wet-Nurse Directory formerly under the auspices 
of the Massachusetts Babies' Hospital was taken over by the Infants' 
Hospital. This fills a long felt need and is a notable addition to 
our activities. A report of this work will be found. 

The needs of every hospital are many, and the Infants' forms no 
exception. First among them we need funds to open our second 
ward. This is less a need of the Hospital than of the general com- 
munity. We need funds for a stenographer to work on the Hos- 
pital records, and to relieve the Assistant Secretary and release her 
for other work. We need a general helper to do technical work 
in the laboratory and in connection with the X-ray Department. 

The death of the following members of the Corporation is noted 
with sorrow : Mrs. Causten Browne, J. Arthur Beebe, Henry 
Freeman Allen and Mrs. Thomas Morgan Rotch ; also, Dr. Charles 
P. Putnam, Consulting Physician to the Hospital. 

Finally, this report cannot close without an attempt to express 
the sorrow felt that one is not here to see the first results of the 
work with which he was more than any one else identified, and 
which in its present form owes its inception to his imaginatiom, 
planning and earnest labor, Thomas Morgan Rotch. 

George S. Derby, 

Medical Director. 



KEPORT OF THE PHYSICIAN. 



Since its opening, the hospital ward has been full all the time, 
except during two brief periods when the ward had to be quaran- 
tined because of the appearance of contagious disease in one of the 
nursemaids. 

The cases which form the majority of those which have been 
treated in the new hospital, represent the worst types of disease 
seen in infancy. There is now a very close co-operation among 
the various institutions treating babies. From the Milk and Baby 
Hygiene Clinics, the sick babies are referred to the Out-Patient 
Departments of such hospitals as the Children's, The Boston Dis- 
pensary, the Massachusetts General, and others. From these, the 
worst cases are selected for admission to hospital wards. Except 
during the short time in summer, when the Floating Hospital is 
open, there is no other hospital which has so many beds available 
for babies under two years of age, as the Infants' Hospital. Con- 
sequently, a large proportion of these bad cases, chosen by a careful 
process of selection, comes to us. I believe that our results have 
been very good, considering the character of the cases we have 
treated. There are still not enough beds available in Boston for 
the care of all these severe cases needing hospital treatment. 

The connection between the Infants' Hospital and the Wet-nurse 
Directory, through which a certain amount of breast milk is avail- 
able for our patients, has been of incalculable aid in saving some of 
our desperate cases. We could do still better work, and possibly 
could materially lower our mortality, if still more breast milk were 
available. 

Much of the work of the Medical Staff has been devoted to per- 
fecting the medical organization of the wards. We have been 
trying to attain completeness and thoroughness in such matters as 
records, physical examination, laboratory and X-ray investigation, 
consultations with specialists and hospital routine. Of great help 



in our attempts to perfect this organization has been the substitution 
of the continuous plan of service, for the service in rotation which 
was used in the old hospital. Under the old plan, the frequent 
changes in the physicians in charge of the medical service, who 
served in rotation, made it difficult to attain a constant and thorough 
organization. Each physician in turn would reorganize the wards 
according to his own ideas, and these frequent changes were not so 
beneficial to the welfare of the patients, as a more constant plan of 
organization. Under the continuous service plan, the entire medical 
staff is on duty all the time, each physician having his own part in 
the organization, and all working with the senior physician as an 
organized team. This greatly increases the hospital's efficiency, 
through the building up of a permanent organization. The Medical 
Staff is still a very small one, much smaller than we shall need in 
the future, but I do not think it advisable to add to it until the 
growth of our organization creates a distinct need for more men. 

I have been much interested, working in connection with our 
Social Service Department, in perfecting our relations with the 
various other institutions and out-patient clinics which act as feeders 
for the Infants' Hospital. Arrangements have been made which 
insure that every patient discharged from our wards goes back to 
the out-patient clinic which referred him to us, and a full account 
of all we have learned and done while the patient was in the hospital, 
is sent to the physician in charge of the clinic. Most of our patients, 
when sent home, still need medical care. We have tided them over 
the most serious period, but have to make room for babies who are 
more in need of hospital care. Our arrangement with the various 
out-patient clinics allows our work to be carried on, and not undone, 
so that any benefit they have gained is made permanent. 

The work of the Social Service Department has been of inestima- 
ble assistance to the work of the Medical Staff. The investigating 
and improving of the home surroundings from which our babies 
come, while they are in the wards, so that they will not go back to 
the same conditions, is a most important factor in making the work 
done for the babies in the Hospital of permanent benefit to the 
community. Also, we are enabled, through the Social Service 



10 

Department, to follow the final results of our treatment and to learn 
when we were right, and when wrong. This ability to check up 
the final results of our work will, in time, greatly increase our 
efficiency. 

The Hospital is being much used for teaching purposes. Dr. 
John Lovett Morse, Professor of Pediatrics, gives the regular lec- 
tures in Pediatrics in the Memorial Lecture Room ; and holds some 
of his clinics there. Sections of both the third and fourth year 
classes are taught in our wards. A new course in milk modification, 
whioh is part of the work for the fourth year class, is given in our 
milk laboratory. 

Considerable research work has been and is being carried on by 
the Medical Staff. This work includes the following subjects : — 
The Bacteriology of the Diarrhoeal Diseases ; Fat Indigestion ; 
Carbohydrate Tolerance ; Immunity in Diphtheria as measured by 
the Schick Reaction ; The Bacteriology of the Pneumonia of Infancy ; 
Tuberculosis. Plans have been made for some research work in 
co-operation with the Carnegie Nutrition Laboratory, on Premature 
Infants, which will be begun as soon as material is available. 

In December was held a Clinical Meeting of the Medical Staff, 
for which general invitations were issued to all connected with the 
Medical School and the various Hospitals. The following cases 
were demonstrated : — Infectious Diseases of the Newborn ; Fried- 
lander's Pneumonia ; Tuberculosis of the Mediastinal Lymph Nodes. 
It is our intention to hold frequent meetings of this character. 
They will probably be organized in co-operation with the Peter 
Bent Brigham and Children's Hospitals.

REPORT OF THE TREASURER. 



The Treasurer's last report was to November 1, 1913, at which 
date the Blossom Street Hospital buildings were closed. He now 
presents a supplementary report for November and December 1913, 
as well as his annual report for 1914. This 1914 report fails to 
show the yearly cost of maintenance, because, for one reason, the 
the present Hospital building was not opened until March 1st. The 
Treasurer estimates, however, that this yearly cost will be about 
$24,500, which includes mortgage interest, and means running the 
Hospital, as at present, far below its normal capacity. To run the 
Hospital to its capacity we want about $28,500 per annum. 

Our policy should be to increase as fast as possible our investment 
funds, and to add as many as possible to our annual subscribers ; 
but, for the present, until we have a much larger assured income, 
we can only hopefully rely for a very large part of the money ne- 
cessary to maintain the Hospital, on donations, entertainments, 
fairs — in short on the help of our friends and the charitable. From 
these sources, we estimate, we should have to secure probably 
$15,000 to 16,000 to run the Hospital to its full patient capacity 
this year. We wish we could feel warranted in doing this. And 
right here let it be said, that any belief that we have received, or 
are about to receive, a large endowment, has no foundation in fact. 
No such endowment has been received, and none is in sight in the 
near future. 

The educational work of the Hospital progresses without obstacle, 
but the charitable work — the care of the sick babies of the poor — is 
badly handicapped for lack of income ; so that it happens that in 
one of the most perfectly equipped infants' hospitals in the world, 
we find a large part of its wards without patients, while sick ba- 
bies are being turned away from its doors. The pity of it is that 



14 

this occurs in a city where the hospital provision for infants is very 
limited indeed. 

During the past year we have received under the will of Godfrey 
Morse, $1000 and the balance of the bequest of Mrs. Mehitable 
C. C. Wilson, amounting to $100. These receipts have been 
credited to the Hospital Investments account. We have also re- 
ceived from the estate of the late William A. Rust, the sum of $600 
which has been added to the Frank Davidson Rust Memorial Fund. 

We wish to express our thanks to all who have given their time 
and money to the Hospital during the year just ended, — to the 
givers of cheques ; to those who have endowed beds ; to those who 
have managed and helped in the entertainments and sales ; and to 
the Ladies Aid Committee who so promptly and effectively came 
to our rescue in December in response to our appeal to them for 
help. 



The Treasurer's accounts herewith are to January 1st, 1915. 
Since that date we have made settlement for the old Hospital prop- 
erty on Blossom St. and Seabury Place, which was taken by the 
City of Boston by right of eminent domain. The amount received 
after deducting expenses incident to the sale, is about $35,500. 

At the Corporation meeting of January 27th the following votes 
were passed : 

Voted. — (1) That of the money received from the sale of the 
Blossom St. and Seabury Place properties, $35,000 be set aside 
during the life of the Corporation for the making of two trust funds, 
the principals of which shall be invested, and the income therefrom 
only used. That one of these trust funds shall be for $25,000 and 
called the Dr. Henry Cecil Haven Trust, in recognition of the fact 
that it was mainly owing to Dr. Haven's efforts, and his very large 
contributions from his father's estate, that the Hospital was success- 
fully established : and in recognition also of Dr. Haven's services 
as the Treasurer and Secretary, and directing Physician of the 
Hospital for some thirteen years after its incorporation. 

That the other Trust Fund shall be for $10,000 and shall be 
called the Elizabeth L. Douglas Memorial Fund, her son Dr. 
Haven having built, equipped and given to the Hospital the Surgi- 
cal Ward in the old Blossom St. building as a memorial to her 



15 

— her maiden name being Elizabeth L. Douglas — . That a copy 
of this vote be sent to Dr. Haven by the Secretary. 

(2) The foregoing vote shall be subject to the approval of Dr. 
Haven and shall not become effective until approved by him in 
writing. The Board of Directors are hereby authorized to adopt 
at their discretion such changes in the form thereof as Dr. Haven 
may desire. 

It is a satisfaction to state that we have received from Dr. Haven 
his approval of these votes. The sad news of his death reaches us 
as this report goes to press.

EEPOET OF THE SOCIAL SEKVICE DEPAETMENT. 



With the abandonment of our Out-Patient Department, through 
which we kept in touch with many of our cases, and with our new 
equipment with its increased opportunities, the need for a Social 
Service Department became pronounced. As Staff, there was at 
first available only one part-time paid worker, but with the assistance 
of Miss Anna C. E. Dunn, a graduate of the School for Social 
Workers, as part-time volunteer ? the Department was organized a 
month after the opening of the new building on March 3d. The 
Medical Staff of the Hospital helped immeasurably in this organiza- 
tion by letting us know in just which directions we could be of most 
use to them, and by their keen interest. As a new agency in the 
field of institutions for social betterment, we were obliged to feel 
our way rather slowly, and seek those particular lines where our 
work would count most. And our points of contact with existing 
agencies had to be defined and arranged. 

The Social Service Department was organized along two main 
lines : 1st. The improvement of conditions surrounding our dis- 
charged patients. 2d. The medical following of all cases for the 
benefit of the Hospital Staff. Hence it will be seen that every pa- 
tient admitted to the general ward must of necessity be known in 
the Social Service Department, whether the home conditions are 
good, bad or indifferent. 

Our routine has developed with a better knowledge of our prob- 
lems. Beginning our work after the Hospital had been receiving 
patients for four weeks, we tried to go backward as well as forward, 
and register, visit, and follow all cases already discharged; and 
although we did eventually catch up, we soon found that the essen- 
tial thing was a knowledge of the family conditions while the pa- 
tient was still in the Hospital. This was brought home to us only 
too vividly when one of our workers took a baby to the address 
given (the location being so good that we had considered that case 



23 

not as important as some back work) , and found that it was the 
house of a friend, that the father was in prison, and the mother 
without a roof over her head. Back came the baby to the Hospital. 
Later, after various agencies had co-operated with us, it was boarded 
out by the Overseers of the Poor. 

Almost immediately after a baby has been admitted to the gen- 
eral ward of the Hospital, an inquiry is made of the Confidential 
Exchange of Information, and as soon as possible the home is 
visited. In cases where the baby is sent to the Hospital by an 
agency which we know is following the social condition of the fam- 
ily, this visit is omitted. Since all cases come to this Department, 
there are a great many in which one visit to the home is enough to 
convince us that there is no further necessity for social investigation. 
In others, alas ! we find all sorts of needs, and it is our task, either 
by our own work or in co-operation with others, to try to remedy 
such defects that there will be a reasonable chance for a favorable 
convalescence. The Medical Staff is in the closest touch with us, 
and is very helpful in letting us know which patients are likely to 
be able to go home soon, and in holding over cases where we are 
not quite prepared for their discharge. 

Upon discharge, the Assistant Physician sends to us a blank, 
showing the date of discharge, diagnosis, formula, and a short his- 
tory of the case. This is copied upon our records, and a copy is 
sent to the Physician or agency which sent the patient to the Hos- 
pital. 

The follow-up work varies greatly in different cases. Some go 
back to doctors or agencies from whom we ask for a report at inter- 
vals of one month, six months and eighteen months after discharge. 
These routine reports are especially requested by the Medical Staff, 
and all the doctors take great interest in the information which we 
obtain, often asking us how such or such a baby, perhaps discharged 
many months ago, has done. Some cases are followed closely until 
we are reasonably sure they will do well, when they are closed for 
the same intervals. Some are followed closely for a much longer 
time. And in this following, besides the actual medical condition 
of the baby, we work on the social condition of the family. Cases 



24 

too distant to visit are kept in touch with by letter, and some of 
the letters from grateful mothers make pleasant reading. 

A few examples may be of interest : 

J. W., aged 3£ mos., one of twins, the other of which died. A 
visit to the home discovered the mother in a very melancholy state, 
owing to the death of the other baby. A friend helped to persuade 
her to go to a Nerve Clinic, from there she was sent to an Eye Clinic, 
where glasses were ordered and the money advanced by the Social 
Service Department. The Staff made a supreme effort to send the 
baby home soon, as it was considered best for the mother to have 
the care of it to occupy her. For a time, until better, she went to 
live with her mother. The Milk Fund supplied the milk free of 
charge. Now the family is boarding all together with friends, and 
about to set up housekeeping with new courage. The baby is do- 
ing splendidly. 

L. L., aged 3 mos. Father young and hard working. Mother 
very ill in City Hospital. Upon discharge, the baby went, at the 
mother's request, to her mother's, where it received such poor care 
that it was soon re-admitted. In time for its second discharge, ar- 
rangements had been made with the Massachusetts Babies' Hospital, 
and the baby is being boarded in the country, the father paying 
part cost, until the mother is well enough to care for it. 

During July and part of September a friend gave us the services 
of a trained worker, and since August, we have had, for a month at 
a time, one of the pupil nurses as visiting nurse. Miss Dunn has 
continued as a part time volunteer and Miss L. B. Nissen has given 
lis clerical assistance. 

The statistics of our work may give an idea of the time spent. 
We have 173 families registered in the Department, exclusive of 
those of the Wet-nurse Directory, which also come under our super- 
vision. 419 visits have been made. 34 districts have been covered 
by our vistors, including those as far away as Salem, Natick, and 
Weymouth. 30 agencies have been co-operated with. Letters 
and telephone calls are many. 

It is a satisfaction to report that the relations between the Social 
Service Department and the homes we visit have been most friendly, 



25 

and that we almost invariably meet with confidence and co-operation 
from those we try to help. 

We also gratefully acknowledge the generous gifts of clothing 
and toys, which have given great comfort and pleasure to many 
babies who otherwise would have had very little this winter. 

The time will come when this work, inadequate now in many direc- 
tions, cannot be properly carried on with our present staff. We 
look forward to having a full time-paid worker, a clerical assistant, 
and a corps of interested volunteers. Soon also we hope to establish 
a Case Committee, composed of our workers, members of the Ladies' 
Aid Committee, and one or two trained workers in other fields.

EEPORT OF THE SECRETARY. 

When the Infants' Hospital was moved to its new building last 
March, the name of this organization was changed from the Ladies' 
Aid Society to the Ladies' Aid Committee of the Infants' Hospital. 

Formerly there existed a number of independent committees whose 
activities have now been absorbed by the Ladies' Aid Committee, 
thus unifying the work of the Hospital more than was possible under 
the previous system. 

The membership is of two kinds, active and associate ; the active 
members paying dues of $1.00 a year and the associate members 
$2.00 a year. At present the committee consists of eighty-three 
active and fifteen associate members. 

The following committees have been formed : Executive, Cutting, 
Social Service and Entertainment.

Mrs. Harrington reports for the Cutting Committee the following 

articles furnished : 

14 36 large flannel night gowns, 26 small flannel night gowns, 36 large flannel 
petticoats, 26 small flannel petticoats, 6 dozen cotton night gowns, 48 crib sheets, 
54 crib spreads, 5 mother's gowns, 36 crib pillow slips, 36 crib screens, 500 
napkins, 4 dozen damask towels for babies, 24 glass towels, 12 dish towels, 12 
nurses' sheets, 12 nurses' spreads, 12 nurses' pillow-cases, 2 dozen sheets, 2 
dozen pillow-cases and 1 dozen spreads for private rooms, 18 surgical crib 
spreads, 12 yards rubber sheeting." 

Mrs. Bradley reports for the Social Service Committee : 
" This committee has recently been formed to aid Miss Farquhar in 
her Social Service work. Its only form of activity so far has been 
to collect clothing for infants and children of all ages, for which 
there is a constant demand. Any contributions of this kind will 
always be gratefully welcomed by Miss Farquhar, and can be sent 
to her at the Infants' Hospital. The committee hopes and expects 
to enlarge its sphere of usefulness as time goes on." 

Mrs. Richardson reports for the Entertainment Committee : 
" Four teas were given in April and May by the Ladies' Aid Com- 
mittee, which were largely attended and most successful. Many 
visitors were shown over the new Hospital. A Cabaret was given 
at the Copley Plaza in May, the net proceeds of which amounted 



28 

to $2,120.67. A small dance was given in Nahant for the benefit 
of the Ladies' Aid Committee, the proceeds of which amounted to 
$246.30." 

I do not wish to close this report without speaking of the splendid 
amount of $2,296.25 raised by the Ladies' Aid Committee in re- 
sponse to a special appeal for money for the running expenses of the 
Hospital. The sum of $2,142.25 was given to the Treasurer before 
the end of the year 1914, and $154 has been handed in since the 

new year began. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mary King Richardson, 

Secretary.

WET-NURSE DIRECTORY. 



The Wet-Nurse Directory, which formerly was a part of the 
Massachusetts Babies' Hospital, has been under the direction of the 
Infants' Hospital since April 22, 1914. 

A house of ten rooms has been provided, consisting of a kitchen, 
dining-room, sitting-room, office, live bed-rooms fitted to accommo- 
date two wet-nurses apiece, a nursery for the babies, the matron's 
room and a bath-room. 

Our object in taking wet-nurses to the Directory is primarily to 
supply healthy, human milk to babies who are ill and for some rea- 
son deprived of their own mother's milk. At the same time we 
have an opportunity to help the young woman who has become a 
mother out of wedlock or the deserted wife who is left to support 
herself and one, or often two children. The mother and baby are 
examined by our physicians, a Wasserman test is made, and no case 
accepted except when found to be free from any infectious or conta- 
gious disease. 

While in the Directory the mothers are taught personal hygiene, 
the care of the babies, and light house-work. They are allowed a 
great deal of time with their babies in order to develope the respon- 
sibility of motherhood. We do not allow a baby to be separated 
from its mother, and we ask the co-operation of the employer in en- 
couraging the young woman to stand by her baby. 

The expense of caring for the wet-nurses at the Directory is very 
great, as they need a great deal of personal attention and training. 
They are often run down from lack of sufficient food during preg- 
nancy, and so are in need of a most generous and nourishing diet. 
After leaving the Directory each mother is assisted individually and 
helped to the kind of work for which she is best suited and has a 
liking, and in which we feel she can be happy in the future. 



32 



The charge for a wet-nurse is $15 a week (which should be paid 
direct to the Treasurer). Of this, $8 goes to the mother and $7 to 
the Directory, so that it may be put as nearly as possible on a self- 
supporting basis. Drawn breast milk may be obtained at the Di- 
rectory, when advised by a physician, to tide over a critical period. 

The Social Worker is notified if any difficulties arise, in order 
that an effort may be made to set things right for the employer as 
well as for the wet-nurse. The Social Worker, Miss McKinnon, is 
at the Directory daily between 11 and 1 o'clock. 

When a wet-nurse is no longer needed in a family she returns to 
the Directory where she remains pending another call, or if no long- 
er able to nurse a baby, until a plan for her future can be made. 

The Directory for wet-nurses gives the babies an opportunity in 
life which they could not get otherwise and makes it possible to save 
the lives of many sick babies who otherwise would have died. 

From April 22, 1914 to January 1, 1915 there have been fifty- 
six applicants examined, six of whom have been rejected. Forty-nine 
wet-nurses have been admitted to the Directory, and forty-two have 
been placed in families. 

The Directory for Wet-nurses has co-operated with the following 
societies : 

Boston Lying-in Hospital, Florence Crittenton League of Com- 
passion, House of Mercy, Instructive District Nursing Associa- 
tion, Massachusetts Babies' Hospital, Peter Bent Brigham Hos- 
pital, State Hospital (Tewksbury), Society for Helping Des- 
titute Mothers and Infants, Talitha Cumi Home.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



This past year, the second in our new building, has shown a 
steady increase in activity within the hospital. We have during 
this year keenly felt the restricted number of beds available, for 
although nearly four hundred sick babies have been admitted it has 
been necessary to refuse admission to approximately nine hundred — 
not because beds were lacking, but because the requisite funds to 
maintain such beds were not available. Fortunately these funds, 
sufficient for the year to come, have now been supplied, and we 
can celebrate the beginning of our third year in this building by 
opening the hospital to its full capacity. 

It was the intention and desire of Dr. Rotch that the Infants' 
Hospital should take a leading part in the education of the public 
as to all matters touching upon infant life. During the past year, 
in addition to the routine work of training nurses and nursemaids 
and to the regular courses for students attending the Harvard Med- 
ical School and the summer courses for graduates, a step in ad- 
vance has been taken. Several courses have been offered for the 
purpose of educating young mothers in the care of infants. These 
courses have been well attended, and we have many testimonials as 
to their value. Last spring a course was given to the pupils of 
"The Garland School of Homemaking," and arrangements have 
now been concluded with Simmons College for the ensuing year 
whereby some eighty students will be able to come to us for a similar 
course of instruction. 

Our Superintendent, Miss Sparrow, who since our installation 
in these new quarters has given faithful and efficient service, left us 
at the close of the year to be married. It is fitting that a record of 
appreciation of her services to the Hospital should be made. Miss 
Sparrow's place has been filled by Miss Elinor D. Gregg. Men- 
tion also should be made of the faithful volunteer service rendered 



6 

the hospital by Miss Julia H. Shepley who has typed all the medi- 
cal records for the past nine months. 

The Social Service Department has greatly extended its work 
during the past year. Two hundred and nine new cases have been 
referred to it, but at present our small force is, although willing 
and enthusiastic, unable properly to handle the work. We have 
only a portion of the time of one paid worker, Miss Farquhar, and 
although she and her faithful volunteer assistant, Miss Dunn, may 
be counted upon to do their utmost, the larger number of cases we 
shall have in the next year cannot possibly be taken care of. 
Social service work is absolutely essential to the work of the Hospi- 
tal if it is to be the force in the community which it is expected to 
be. We could make good use of one full-time and one half-time 
worker. 

Early last spring the Wet-Nurse Directory moved from its dis- 
tant quarters to a house on Binney Street in close proximity to the 
Hospital. Sixty-eight wet-nurses, since then, have been placed in 
private families and two have been constantly on call to meet the 
needs of the Hospital. This directory, the only one of its kind in 
New England as far as I know, is of the utmost value to the com- 
munity, and deserves to be better known and more widely utilized. 

The Ladies' Aid Committee is showing great zeal in furthering 
the interests of the Hospital, and grateful recognition for their ser- 
vices should be given. It is due to their efforts that a sum of money 
has been raised this winter which enables us to use the much needed 
beds which perforce, up to this time, have been idle. 

The death of the following members of the Corporation is noted 
with sorrow, Francis C. Foster and Henry C. Haven.

Medical Diccctor. 



KEPOBT OF THE PHYSICIAN. 



During the past year it has become quite clear what the medical 
work of the Infants' Hospital is to be in caring for the sick babies 
of the community. Part of this work is the same as in any hospital 
for acute disease. A certain number of our patients are admitted 
for acute self-limited diseases, for the proper care of which the re- 
sources of a modern hospital are urgently needed. These cases can 
be cared for in the Hospital until they are entirely well. 

The larger proportion of our cases represent chronic conditions of 
various kinds, particularly disturbances of nutrition. By a process 
of selection, the worst cases of this class come into our wards. 
Such conditions are due to a combination of congenital constitutional 
weakness with faulty care and bad hygienic surroundings, and either 
factor may be the chief cause. These cases cannot be kept in our 
wards until they are entirely well ; it would require a hospital of 
hundreds of beds to do this. They can, however, be taken for a 
time from their faulty hygienic surroundings, and given a start, and 
tided over the worst period with the aid of our milk labratory and 
wet-nurses. After their discharge, through the valuable work of 
our Social Service Department, they return to homes in which the 
faulty conditions have been removed or ameliorated, and are follow- 
ed up in their subsequent history, so that we make sure that they 
continue to have proper medical supervision. 

The serious diseases of the first two years of life are often very 
obscure, yet successful treatment depends upon an accurate diagno- 
sis. Modern diagnosis has become very complex, with a great 
number of diagnostic methods which cannot be applied either in the 
homes of the patients, or in an out-patient clinic. This institution 
provides a place where every known diagnostic method is available. 
An important part is played by the hospital in making the diagnosis 
in these cases, and in starting the proper treatment. When the 
patient is discharged, a full account of our diagnosis and treatment 



8 

is transmitted to the physician who is to have charge of the case. 
The results of our work, as reported by the Social Service Depart- 
ment, especially in tuberculosis and nutritional disturbances, have 
been very gratifying. 

Our medical staff is far too small. The amount of routine work 
required by modern methods of diagnosis and treatment is enor- 
mous. It is difficult to enlarge our Staff, because the best younger 
men who are beginning hospital work hesitate to give their time to 
an institution which treats only children under the age of two years. 
This difficulty has been partly overcome through an arrangement by 
which one of the Staff of the Children's Hospital is given leave of 
absence for a year to work with us. It has also been partly overcome 
by our efforts to perfect the organization of the routine medical 
work. The needs of our patients in diagnosis and treatment must 
of course be our first care, and I do not think that our Staff is too 
small to carry on the actual medical work required, if we give it the 
greater part of our time. 

Where we are handicapped by our small Staff is chiefly in the 
matter of medical research. The Infants' Hospital was designed to 
be, and should be, a centre for research of the best type on the 
problems presented by disease in early life. The members of the 
Medical Staff would like to carry out this purpose, but recognizing 
that their first duty is the medical care of their patients, and that 
their second duty is efficient teaching of the undergraduate and 
graduate students who come to the hospital for instruction, they find 
that they have but little time left which can be devoted to research. 
The difficulty confronting the men in actual charge of patients, who 
desire to pursue thorough lines of scientific research, has been recog- 
nized by many hospitals, and has led to the establishment of salaried 
positions for research workers. At the present time, thorough 
scientific research demands all a man's time, and men who will give all 
their time to it without a salary cannot be obtained. I mention this 
matter realizing that at present the highest ideals of the hospital in 
the matter of research cannot be attained, but hoping that it will be 
seriously considered at some future time. Our chief need is a sal- 
aried pathologist to do the routine work and research work in path- 
ology. Our second need, if we become in the future a great 



research hospital, would be a salaried chemist, and our third need 
would be a salaried bacteriologist. 

In spite of present difficulties, a considerable amount of research 
has been carried out during the year by the Medical Staff. Some 
of it has already proved to be of actual practical value in the medi- 
cal care of the babies in the hospital wards. For example, four 
cases of a certain diseased condition all ended fatally. We believed 
that this result could be attributed to a deficiency in the available 
methods of diagnosis, which caused so much delay that surgical in- 
terference came too late. We worked out certain improved meth- 
ods of diagnosis in the hospital wards, and since these studies have 
been carried out, three cases of the same condition have all recov- 
ered. Another procedure, a method of treatment, worked out in 
the hospital wards, has already apparently saved two babies ad- 
mitted in a moribund condition. 

Papers have been published, based on work done at the hospital, 
on the following subjects : — -Studies on Fat Indigestion in Infancy ; 
Studies on Sugar in Infant Feeding; Diagnosis and Treatment of 
Pyloric Stenosis and Pyloric Spasm at the Infants' Hospital ; 
Bronchial Lymph Glands in Infancy ; Tuberculosis in Early Life ; 
Friedlander's Pneumonia ; Congenital Cirrhosis of the Liver. 

In conclusion, I wish to express my appreciation of the very 
faithful work of my colleagues on the Medical Staff, and of their 
valuable co-operation in perfecting the organization of the medical 
routine. I wish also, in the name of the Staff, to express my ap- 
preciation of the admirable executive management of the Hospital, 
which is rendering our work so much easier.

REPORT OF THE TREASURER. 



The cost of maintaining the Hospital for the year 1915, including 
interest paid, was $25,623.38. For the year 1916, with all it3 wards 
in service, it is now stated that we shall need at least $6,000. more. 
The money received from our December appeal and paid into the 
Old Colony Trust Co. does not appear in our report as a part of 
1915 income. Leaving this out, therefore, and not including 
$475.00 specifically given for the cost of maintaining the Draper 
Ward, just opened, we have a shortage of income for 1915 of 
$1,653.20. This deficit has been charged off to investment account, 
and is the only shortage of income so charged oiF since we have 
occupied the present building. 

From the December appeal we have received $13,046.50. The 
names of the donors are published in this report, and the Treasurer 
in behalf of the Hospital takes this oppotunity to again thank them 
for their liberal response to our call for help. He also wishes to 
record, that the plan of the appeal, and the carrying out of the ap- 
peal in every particular, was the work of the Ladies' Aid Commit- 
tee, and the Junior Branch to whom we are indebted for the time 
and labor they so generously gave. 

In the past year avc have received payment for the old Hospital 
property on Blossom St. Approximately the whole of this sum, 
after deducting expenses incident to the sale, has been used to es- 
tablish the Doctor Henry Cecil Haven Trust of $25,000, and 
the Elizabeth L. Douglas Memorial Fund of $10,000. This action 
was in accordance with the vote of the Corporation which was pub- 
lished in our 1914 report. The money has been invested as shown 
in the Treasurer's account. 

In 1906, Mrs. Roger F. Sturgis collected for the new Hospital, 
then to be built, the sum of $850. This was placed in Dr. Thomas 
M. Rotch's hands as Trustee. The Executors of Dr. Rotch's estate 
have paid over to the Hospital the $850 collected, with interest, 



14 

the amount received being $1,095.44. Of this, $990 has been in- 
vested, and the remainder ($105.44) used for the general expenses 
of the Hospital. A list of the donors will be found in another part 
of this report. 

We have also received from the Executors of Philip C. Lock- 
wood, the sum of $5,118.89 for the endowment of a bed to the 
memory of Maria D. Lockwood. 

The report of the Auditing Committee, just at hand, shows that 
the present value of our investments, including our Trust Funds, 
is $135,977.17, the income from which for 1916 should be about 
$6,475. If we deduct from this $2,475, the annual interest on our 
$55,000 mortgage note, we get a net income from our investments 
of $4,000, which is but a small contribution to the amount needed 
for the general expenses of the Hospital. To repeat what we stated 
in last year's report, we see nothing M coming our way " in the near 
future in the form of an endowment fund, or an increase in our in- 
vestment account. While therefore, we start the present year in a 
comfortable way financially as regards immediate needs, and with 
the satisfaction of seeing the Hospital open to its full patient capac- 
ity, we must still look ahead and try and find some means to 
increase our fixed income. 

Nelson S. Bartlett, 

Treasurer.

KEPOET OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT. 



During the past year 209 new cases have been referred to the 
Social Service Department. These added to the number given in the 
last report make a total of 482 families we have kept more or less in 
touch with, according to their necessities. The demands which we 
have to meet are many and varied. In addition to the visits made 
to the homes many letters of inquiry are written and received. 
Cases too distant to visit are kept in touch with by letter. Thirty- 
eight districts have been covered by our visitors and we have co- 
operated with many charitable agencies. 

We are greatly indebted to our volunteer worker, Miss Anna C. R. 
Dunn, who has worked so faithfully in this Department. Miss L. 
B. Nissen and Miss Marguerite Harrington have given clerical 
assistance. 

The follow-up work is a systematic effort to investigate and cor- 
rect the conditions found in the homes, family life and the surround- 
ings, which would prevent good care of the patients after leaving the 
Hospital. Also to give medical supervision to the babies and in- 
struction to the mothers. For example : what is the use of the 
physician prescribing a carefully worked-out milk formula for a 
baby and looking for results if, as in many of our cases, the parents 
cannot afford to buy clean milk, or for various reasons are unable 
to separate and recombine the milk properly without supervision ? 
The modern treatment of Tuberculosis is mainly a question of hy- 
giene and nourishment rather than the prescribing of specific drugs ; 
consequently such discharged patients are referred to this Depart- 
ment for close supervision and must be visited at definite intervals. 
In this work we feel that good progress has been made. Parents 
are teaming the value of clean milk and the traditional fear of fresh 
air for sick babies is being gradually overcome. 

The Medical Staff is in close touch with this Department and 
notifies the Social Worker when a baby is considered sufficiently 



21 

improved to go home. Upon discharge a copy of the Hospital 
record is sent to the Physician, Dispensary or Agency from which 
the baby was referred. 

In relief work our activities are mainly in enlisting the efforts of 
other charitable organizatians. 

We gratefully acknowledge the generous gifts of clothing. We 
do not make a practice of distributing clothing among our families 
but we are sometimes confronted with emergencies which require 
practical and immediate attention. 

A Case Committee has been established during the year, com- 
posed of our workers, delegates from the Ladies' Aid Committee 
and a trained worker from the Associated Charities. We bring 
before this committee our most difficult problems and receive many 
helpful suggestions. 

During August and September, the vacation months, Mr. Thomas 
Dunn kindly gave the services of a part-time worker. We have 
also had, for a month at a time, one of the pupil nurses as visiting 
nurse. 

The time has come when this work, inadequate now in many 
directions, cannot be properly carried on with the present staff, 
which consists of only one part-time paid worker and a part-time 
volunteer.

Social Worker.

EEPORT OF THE SECRETARY. 

The Ladies' Aid Committee has held regular meeting's at the 
Hospital, the first Tuesday in each month from October until June, 
with an average attendance of twenty percent of the members 
at each meeting. The committee is now working under their first 
set of By-laws, adopted at the February meeting. The member- 
ship list has been thoroughly revised and consists at present of 
seventy-eight active and forty-four associate members. 

Since October 1st the Committee has financed and conducted a 
newspaper appeal for funds to open and run the hospital to its full 
capacity for one year, which has met with the greatest success and 
generosity, the figures of which will be found in the Treasurer's report. 

A Junior Branch of the Ladies' Aid Committee was organized in 
October with dues of $1.00 a year. Its duties are to assist the 
Ladies' Aid in its work for the Hospital.

nurses' sheets, 6 nurses' spreads, 2 dozen pillow cases, 2 dozen nurses' towels, 
20 yards rubber sheeting." 

Mrs. Crowninshield reports for the Social Service Committee : 

"Monthly case meetings have been held by the Committee for 
the purpose of considering plans for improvement of social condi- 
tions in families (where necessary) , in order that the babies may 
have proper care after leaving the hospital. Clothing for infants 
and children of all ages has been collected and used in times of em- 
ergency; any contributions of this kind will always be gratefully 
received and should be sent to Miss Farquhar at the Infant's 
Hospital." 



24 

Mrs. Richardson reports for the Entertainment Committee : 
H A Cabaret was given at the Copley Plaza on May 7th, which 
was largely attended and most successful. The net proceeds a- 
mountedto $2,602, $102 of which went to the Ladies' Aid Com- 
mittee for its running expenses." 

Miss Baylies reports for the Junior Branch : 

"During December the Junior Branch assisted in sending out 
the appeal for $10,000 for the Draper ward. On Tuesday, Decem- 
ber 21st. the Junior Branch held a sale of cake, candy and house- 
hold articles, at 5 Common weath Avenue, from 3 to 6 o'clock. At 
this sale $318 were raised, with $300 of which it has been voted to 
endow a bed at the Infants' Hospital for one year. Meetings are 
held on the first Wednesday of every month, at 10.30 o'clock." 

It is most gratifying to all the ladies working in the interest of 
the hospital to see what has been accomplished in the year 1915, 
and we all feel as if our work had been well repaid. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mary King Kichabdson, 

Secretary.

WET-NUKSE DIRECTORY. 



The Wet-Nurse Directory has been under the direction of the 
Infants' Hospital since April 22, 1914. In June 1915 it was de- 
cided to move the Directory in order to be nearer theJHospital. A 
suitable house of thirteen rooms, at 63 Binney St., Boston, was 
engaged and renovated for this purpose. Our object in taking wet- 
nurses is primarily to supply healthy human milk to babies who are 
ill and for some reason deprived of their own mother's milk. At the 
same time we have an opportunity to help the young woman who 
has become a mother out of wedlock, or the deserted wife who is 
left to support herself and one, or often two children. The mother 
and baby are examined by the Infants' Hospital physicians, a Was- 
serman test is made, and no case accepted except when found to be 
free from any infectious or contagious disease. 

While in the Directory the mothers are taught personal hygiene, 
the care of the babies and light house-work. They are allowed a 
great deal of time with their babies in order to develop the respon- 
sibility of motherhood. We do not allow a baby to be separated 
from its mother, and we ask the co-operation of the employer in 
encouraging the young woman to stand by her child. 

The expense of caring for the wet-nurses at the Directory is very 
great, as they need a great deal of personal attention and training. 
They are often run down from lack of sufficient food during preg- 
nancy, and so are often in need of a most generous and nourishing 
diet. After leaving the Directory each mother is assisted individ- 
ually and helped to the kind of work for which she is best suited 
and has a liking, and in which we feel she can be happy in the 
future. 

The charge for a wet-nurse is $15.00 a week (which should be 
paid direct to the Treasurer). Of this, $8.00 goes to the mother 
and $7.00 to the Directory, so that it may be put as nearly as 



30 

possible on a self-supporting basis. Drawn breast milk may be ob- 
tained at the Directory, when advised by a physician, to tide over a 
critical period. 

The Social worker is notified if any difficulties arise, in order that 
an effort may be made to set things right for the employer as well 
as for the wet-nurse. The Social Worker is at the Directory daily 
between 11 and 1 o'clock. 

When a wet-nurse is no longer needed in a family she returns to 
the Directory where she remains pending another call, or if no 
longer able to nurse a baby, until a plan for her future can be made. 
The Directory gives the wet-nurses' babies an opportunity in life 
which they could not get otherwise, and makes it possible to save 
the lives of many sick babies who otherwise would have died. 

From January 1st, 1915 to January 1st, 1916 there have been 
eighty-four applicants examined, ten of whom were rejected. 
Seventy-four wet-nurses have been admitted to the Directory, and 
sixty-eight placed in families. 

The Directory has co-operated with the following societies : 
Boston Lying-in Hospital, Florence Crittenton League of Com- 
passion, House of Mercy, Instructive District Nursing Asso- 
ciation, Massachusetts Babies' Hospital, Peter Bent Brigham 
Hospital, State Hospital (Tewksbury), Society for Helping 
Destitute Mothers and Infants, Talitha Cumi Home, Avon 
Home (Cambridge), City Institutions, League of Catholic 
Women, Newton Hospital, Social Service Dept., Salvation 
Army.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



In January, 1916, the wards which had been lying idle for lack 
of funds were opened, and since early in February the Hospital has 
been running to its fullest capacity. The opening was marked by 
simple exercises, with short addresses by the President of the Di- 
rectors, by President Eliot, and by Dr. John Collins Warren. 

During the year (practically eleven months) we have cared for 
719 babies, as compared with 396 in 1915. In spite of our en- 
larged facilities, we have been filled throughout the year, and have 
often had to turn away babies in urgent need of hospital treatment. 

The larger number of patients requires a larger staff, and it is 
recommended that an additional assistant physician be appointed. 
We now have two house physicians serving for a three months' 
period and resident in the Hospital, so that each year we are able 
to give this valuable training to eight men. We are now training 
thirty nurses a year and twenty- eight nursemaids. 

It has also been necessary to add to our permanent salaried hos- 
pital force. A trained dietitian has been secured, who has charge 
of the food laboratory and assists the Superintendent in the house- 
keeping department. We have a technician for woik in the patho- 
logical laboratory and in the X-ray department. One of the most 
important of our many needs is a salaried pathologist and bacteriol- 
ogist to relieve our medical staff, and especially the physician, of 
much comparatively unproductive routine labor. Such an addition 
to our force would increase considerably our opportunity to do val- 
uable research. 

The ' usual amount of graduate and post-graduate teaching has 
been carried out in the Hospital during the year, and in addition a 
course on the care of infants has been given to eighty students from 
Simmons College. This coming year we are to give demonstra- 



6 

tions to school extension pupils who are under the direction of the 
National Civic League. 

The Social Service Deparment in the past year has done valuable 
work under great difficulties. There are now over one thousand 
active cases being followed up. To take care of the large number 
of cases referred, we have had a head worker on less than half time 
work, one worker on half time, a nurse assigned from the Hospital 
force for one month's service, a clerk and a variable amount of vol- 
unteer assistance. The Executive Committee, recognizing" the ne- 
cessity of this work and the inability of our force properly to care 
for it, has recently authorized the employment of an additional 
worker. 

Your attention is again called to the activities of the Wet-Nurse 
Directory. Its usefulness to this community and to the whole of 
New England has increased. It is hoped that in the near future a 
fund may be established for the purpose of providing wet-nurses and 
breast milk at minimum rates, or free to those who can ill afford to 
pay. 

In the past year the Ladies' Aid Committee was instrumental in 
raising the large sum of money which enabled us to double our ca- 
pacity. They have furnished us with a greatly increased amount of 
clothing and other supplies, and in addition their members have 
given valuable service on various sub-committees organized to fur- 
ther the Hospital work. 

To continue the activities outlined here, we need money. The 
high cost of living, alone, will necessitate a considerable increase in 
our income. A hospital must advance, or it will lose ground. To 
plan according to the amount of money now in sight would mean a 
considerable curtailment of our work. Let us hope our friends will 
support us even more generously in the year to come than in the 
past year. 

George S. Derby, 

Medical Director. 



KEPOKT OF THE PHYSICIAN-IN-CHIEF. 



The work of the Medical Staff at the Infants' Hospital naturally 
falls into three divisions. These are, first, the medical care of the 
babies in the wards ; second, medical teaching ; and third, medical 
research. The actual work in the wards of the hospital has been 
described in previous reports. The opening of an additional ward 
has greatly added to the amount of routine work required from the 
Medical Staff. Both the House Staff and the Visiting Staff have 
been somewhat enlarged, and are at present adequate for the actual 
medical care of our babies. 

The problem which has chiefly interested the Medical Staff" during 
the past year is, whether the hospital mortality can be in any way 
reduced. It is a well recognized fact that in all hospitals devoted 
to the care of infants under two years of age, the mortality is high. 
In this hospital, the class of cases to which belong the majority of 
our patients is such that we must necessarily expect many deaths. 
The Infants' Hospital is the final resort to which are sent many des- 
perate cases of disease in infants, and many of our patients enter the 
hospital already moribund, or in a condition so desperate that very 
little can be done. The mortality from this class of cases is una- 
voidable. The Medical Staff, however, has been seriously debating 
the question as to whether any of our mortality is avoidable. There 
has been a certain number of instances in which infants have con- 
tracted a new diseased condition while in the Hospital, and occasion- 
ally this has led to a fatal ending. Some of our babies are in a con- 
dition such that they cannot bear any additional burden of disease. 
Infections of the upper respiratory tract, including such conditions 
as common colds, sore throats, bronchitis and inflammation of the 
middle ear, are very prevalent in infants' hospitals. It is these 
infections, which in robust children run a comparatively mild course, 



8 

which sometimes turn the scale against a poorly nourished baby. 
These catarrhal infections of the upper respiratory tract are recog- 
nized as being contagious, and wherever many infants are kept in 
more or less close contact, there is an excellent opportunity for 
transmission. The transmissibility of these diseases can be greatly 
lessened by a very careful nursing technic. 

The Medical Staff has been occupied with a most rigorous revi- 
sion of the nursing methods employed in the hospital, and feels that 
with the cooperation of the nursing department much progress has 
been made in this direction. Nevertheless, with the conditions 
which obtain in our wards at present, the opportunity for the trans- 
mission of this class of infections has not been reduced to a mini- 
mum. Owing to the arrangement of the wards, there are not suf- 
ficient opportunities for isolation. The Infants' Hospital wards were 
constructed upon the large open ward system, which is not the sys- 
tem best adapted to a modern Infants' Hospital. Smaller units, 
rooms in which only a few babies are kept, are better. The disad- 
vantages of our ward construction can be overcome by the installa- 
tion of a modern cubicle system. Most of the best infants' hospi- 
tals, both in this country and in Europe, have such a system. The 
cubicles are formed by glass partitions between the beds, which rise 
high enough from the floor to prevent the transmission of contagion 
from patient to patient through the air, but do not rise to the ceil- 
ing, thus permitting free circulation of air. The Medical Staff 
strongly urges the installation of such a cubicle system in the hospi- 
tal wards, and believes that unless this is done we cannot be consid- 
ered to have a model hospital, nor to have made every possible ef- 
fort toward the reduction of infant mortality. 

The teaching at the Infants' Hospital has become a more and more 
important part of the instruction in Pediatrics given in the Harvard 
Medical School. In particular, a large number of graduates from 
all parts of the country come to our wards for instruction in our 
methods. 

The third object for which the Infants' Hospital was founded, that 
of giving to the world the results of research work in the diseases of 
infancy, has not yet been thoroughly realized. The Medical Staff, 



while adequate to perform the routine work of caring for our babies, 
which is of course our first consideration, is unable to devote much 
time to research. With modern methods of diagnosis and treatment, 
the routine work required in the care of fifty babies is enormous, 
and does not leave much opportunity for scientific research. We 
have been doing what we can, and in particular have accumulated 
results which we believe will be of general value in the tuberculosis 
of infancy, which will shortly be published. This work is wholly 
of a statistical character, based on a comparison between our clinical 
investigations and the results of our post-mortems. If the Infants' 
Hospital is ever to become a great research hospital, the work must 
be not only clinical and statistical, but experimental. In a modern 
hospital, if good experimental work is to be done, it is absolutely ne- 
cessary that there be connected with the hospital salaried scientific in- 
vestigators, who could devote their time to the work. While I re- 
alize that this ideal cannot be immediately attained, I feel it my 
duty to mention salaries for scientific research workers as one of the 
principal needs of the Hospital to be considered in the future. 

Finally, I wish to express my appreciation of two departments of 
the hospital, the Wet-Nurse Directory and the Social Service De- 
partment. The connection of the W r et-Nurse Directory with the 
hospital allows us to have a certain amount of human milk. This 
is the most important single life-saving measure in use in our wards. 
The work of the Social Service department enables the physicians in 
the hospital to feel that their labors are not all nullified as soon as 
the baby goes home, and I believe it to be fully as important in the 
general reduction of infant mortality, as the work performed in the 
hospital wards.

REPORT OF THE TREASURER. 



With the $13,425.50 received from the appeal which was managed 
by the Ladies' Aid Committee in December, 1915, we have run the 
Hospital, with all its wards in service, since early the past year, and 
have been able to carrv forward to our 1917 income the sum of 
$1885.85. In December, last, we sent a circular letter to a limited 
number of persons, asking for donations for the present year, and 
some mention of the Hospital's needs was made in the newspapers. 
From this appeal, up to January 1st, we had received, as shown in 
this report, $4853.00, and up to the present time $6585.00. This 
amount added to the $1885.85 gives us towards our 1917 expenses 
$8470.85. 

We foresee, however, that we shall need many donations to carry 
us through this year, which must call for a larger income than 1916. 
This is owing in part to the greater demands of our Social Service 
work in connection with the sick babies treated in the Hospital, and 
then, generally speaking, prices are advancing, or have advanced. 
We hope, therefore, that all who are interested enough to read this 
report will understand that an important part of its purpose is an 
appeal for money. This we emphasize by the envelopes enclosed, 
which we trust will come back to us with checks, and that no one 
will hesitate to send a check because they can only spare a small one. 

We wish to increase the list of our annual subscribers for what- 
ever amount each may care to contribute. The Ladies' Aid Com- 
mittee have shown results in this direction, for which we are grateful. 
They have added 49 names of new annual subscribers, which means 
$490 more income annually. Besides this we are indebted to the 
Ladies' Aid Committee for $244, in donations, the past year. 

Under the will of Josephine Angier Binney of Providence, who 

died in 1915, the sum of $5,000 was given to Arthur Gr. Rotch for 

the benefit of the Hospital. For the time being this money is to be 

invested, and the income used for the running expenses of the 

Hospital.

REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT. 



During the year, 491 cases have been referred to the Social Ser- 
vice Department, These 49 1 new applicants, added to the 402 who 
were under our care at the beginning of the year, makes a total of 
893 families we have kept in touch with, more or less, according to 
their necessities. This department has handled twice as many new 
cases as in the preceding year. This was due to the fact that the 
hospital was opened to its fullest capacity on January 20, 1916. The 
amount of investigating and visiting by the social workers increases 
according to the number of patients admitted to the ward. The 
follow-up work is of vital importance to the success of the depart- 
ment, and it is most essential that there should be sufficient workers 
to adequately meet this growing demand. 

We believe the chief effort of social service in hospitals treating 
infants should be directed to prophylactic work. The education of 
the mother in the care of her child is the strongest weapon available 
in the prevention of disease, for ignorance of infant hygiene is the 
greatest of all causes of the high rate of infant mortality. To ac- 
complish this end, the method we employ in the Social Service 
Department is to gain the confidence of the mother, and then attempt 
to solve through education the problems presented in each individual 
home. 

Although our chief interest is the welfare of the babies in the 
homes visited, we frequently find that there is a distinct family prob- 
lem. For instance, parents so destitute that they cannot afford to 
buy milk for their babies, are not cases for free milk alone, but for 
general relief. The existing conditions may be due to various 
causes, such as sickness, lack of employment, or alcoholism. In 
handling such cases we enlist the efforts of charitable organizations 
and of the clergyman. In this way, we cause many of our families 



20 

to be looked after by the proper authorities who would not reach 
them otherwise. 

Most of our patients, when sent home, are still in need of medi- 
cal care. The Hospital has tided them over the most serious pe- 
riod, but they must be discharged to make room for others who are 
acutely ill. Arrangements have been made which insure that every 
baby discharged from our wards goes back to the private physician 
or out-patient clinic from which he was referred, and a full account 
of all that has been learned and done while the patient was in the 
hospital is sent to the private physician or out-patient clinic. This 
allows our work to be carried on, and not undone, so that any ben- 
efit gained may be permanent. 

It is the duty of the social workers to investigate the homes of 
the babies immediately after admission. Since all ward cases come 
to this department, there are many in which one visit is sufficient 
to convince us that there is no need for social investigation. In 
others we find all sorts of needs and either by our own work or by 
co-operation with other societies, we endeavor to improve the home 
conditions that the baby may have a reasonable chance for favorable 
convalescence. In some cases it is necessary to provide a tempo- 
rary boarding home. When a baby is sent to us by an agency, 
which we know is following the social conditions of the family, this 
work is omitted. 

After the patients are discharged to their homes the follow-up 
visitor instructs and supervises the mothers in the care of the babies 
and directs them to the family physician or to the various out- 
patient clinics for medical care. 

As in the past, we have been requested by the Medical Staff to 
follow certain babies very closely. And in all cases they ask for 
medical reports at periods of one, seven, and nineteen months after 
discharge. The work has increased to such an extent that these 
last visits may necessarily be omitted, as we feel that it is in our 
early contact with the family that the greatest amount of good is 
done. 

The hearty co-operation we receive from other agencies is most 
gratifying. 



21 

Much gratitude and appreciation is due Miss Anna C. R. Dunn 
for her faithful volunteer service. We desire to express our fullest 
appreciation to the ladies of the Social Service Committee for their 
helpful advice, in our monthly meetings, and to the Medical Staff 
for their interest and co-operation. 

Mention should be made of the faithful service rendered by the 
assistant workers in this department, which has made it possible to 
carry on our work with the present measure of success. 

Margaret Farquhar, 

Social Worker.

Report of the Secretary. 

The Ladies' Aid Committee has held regular monthly meetings 
the first Tuesday in each month, which have been well attended, an 
average of twenty being present. 

One of the most important and satisfactory pieces of work done 
by the Ladies' Aid was the opening of the Draper ward. This 
means much to the hospital, and was made possible by the proceeds 
of the Publicity Campaign. The ward was formally opened by 
speeches, followed by a tea, on Thursday, January 20, 1916. 

Another good piece of work accomplished this year by the Ladies' 
Aid was adding forty-nine new annual subscribers for the hospital, 
which means a yearly income of $490.00. Besides this, $244.00 
has been given to the hospital in donations through the Ladies' Aid 
Committee. We all feel that the year has been a most successful 
one. The Committee wishes to thank the Junior Branch for under- 
taking the directing and sending out of the postal cards for the 
monthly meetings. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mary King Richardson, 

Secretary.

been somewhat interrupted this year by the epidemic of Polyo- 
myelitis, it having been thought inadvisable to hold them during 
that time, as the visitor went into so many homes in the infected 
districts. Since the opening of the Draper ward in January, 1916, 
the work of this department has been doubled, and a new worker 
is to be added in the near future, as it is impossible for the present 
staff to give due attention to all the cases. The follow-up work is 
essential to insure the permanent recovery of the babies." 

Mrs. Bradley reports for the Nursery Maids' Committee : 

n This Committee has met at the hospital on the last Thursday of 
every month with the exception of a short time in the summer. It 
endeavors to help Miss Gregg in her efforts to train the kind of 
nursemaid the community calls for. This work is of the greatest 
importance, as one of the principal ways the Public and the Hospital 
come in touch with each other is through the Nursery Maids* 
Registry." 

Mrs. Richardson reports for the Entertainment Committee : 
" The only entertainment given this year was at the hospital, a 
tea, after the opening of the Draper ward. It was well attended, 
and the Junior Branch helped to make it a success." 

• 
Report of the Junior Branch : 

The Junior Branch meets at the hospital on the first Wednesday 
of every month, from 9.30 to 11.30 a.m. At these meetings 
bandages, sponges and premature gowns are made, work which 



25 

heretofore has been done in the hospital by the nurses and nurse- 
maids, but which, since the hospital has doubled its capacity, it was 
impossible to continue. It has also contributed half the wages 
of a sewing woman to do the hospital mending, and has recently 
assumed the duty of sending out the monthly notices of the Ladies' 
Aid meetings.

WET-NURSE DIRECTORY. 



The Wet-Nurse Directory was started in 1910, and has been 
under the direction of the Infants' Hospital since April 22, 1914. 
In June, 1915, it was decided to move the Directory in order to be 
nearer the Hospital. A suitable house of thirteen rooms at 63 
Binney Street, Boston, was engaged for this purpose, but a consid- 
erable sum of money has had to be expended by the Committee to 
put the building in proper condition. 

Our object in taking wet-nurses is directly to supply healthy 
human milk to babies who are ill and for some reason are deprived 
of their own mother's milk. At the same time we have an oppor- 
tunity of helping the young woman, who has become a mother out 
of wedlock, or a deserted wife, who has to support herself, and often 
one or two children. 

The mother and baby are examined by an Infants' Hospital phy- 
sician and a Wassermann test made, and no case is accepted unless 
it is found to be free from infectious diseases. During the year 
which this report covers, sixty new applicants were received at the 
Directory. Six of these were not considered, because the mothers 
could not leave their homes to live at the Directory. Thirty-five 
of the fifty-four that were examined were admitted to the Directory. 

While living at the Directory the mothers are taught personal 
hygiene, the care of their babies, and light housework. They are 
allowed a great deal of time with their babies, in order to develop 
the responsibility of motherhood. It is a rule of the Directory, that 
the baby shall not be separated from its mother. 

There is a staff of three workers at the Directory, one of whom 
is a "Social Worker, who learns the history of each case, and who is 
at the Directory daily between eleven and one o'clock. She is noti- 
fied if any difficulties arise, in order that an effort may be made to 
set things right for the employer as well as for the wet-nurse. There 



29 

is also a House Matron, who lives at the Directory and acts as 
House Mother to the wet-nurses. This year it was found necessary 
to add another worker, who lives at the Directory and helps in 
chaperoning the girls, and in assisting them in transportation when 
called to private families. 

A Recreation Fund has been established during the year by the 
Ladies' Committee, to furnish amusement for the mothers. In warm 
weather outings are planned, and during the cold weather parties 
are given in the house. The girls are encouraged to take part in 
the work of arranging the entertainments. 

The expense of caring for the wet-nurses at the Directory is very 
large, as they need a great deal of personal attention and training. 
They are frequently run down from lack of sufficient food during 
pregnancy, and so are often in need of a most generous and nour- 
ishing diet. On leaving the Directory each mother is assisted indi- 
vidually and helped to the kind of work for which she is best fitted, 
through the co-operation of the Society that has referred the case, 
or the Society for Helping Destitute Mothers and Infants. A case 
meeting is held by the Ladies' Committee every two weeks, to dis- 
cuss the social problem of each wet-nurse as presented by the Social 
Worker. 

The charge for a wet-nurse is $15 a week, which is paid direct 
to the Treasurer. Of this, $8 goes to the mother, and $7 to the 
Directory, so that it may be put as nearly as possible on a self- 
supporting basis. In special cases a reduction of the charge is made 
to people of limited means (the sum reduced being deducted from 
the $7 paid to the Directory). Drawn breast milk at $.50 an 
ounce may be obtained at the Directory, when advised by a physician, 
to tide over a critical case. In so far as possible the usual policy 
of supplying the Infants' Hospital wards with two wet-nurses has 
been maintained. 

When a wet-nurse is no longer needed in a family she returns to 
the Directory, where she remains pending another call, or if no 
longer able to nurse a baby, until a plan for her future can be made. 

From January 1 to December 31, 1916, fifty-six families were 
supplied with wet-nurses for sick babies, and as many as thirty 



30 



families were supplied with drawn breast milk. In no ease has the 
child of the wet-nurse been separated from its mother, thus giving 
the child an opportunity in life which it probably would not other- 
wise have had. It has been found in a majority of cases that the 
mothers form a lasting affection for their babies when they are kept 
together the first half year of life. The employer is asked to en- 
courage the young mother to stand by her baby, and it is gratifying 
to say that, in most instances, they have done so with hearty co- 
operation. 

The Directory is the only institution of its kind in New England, 
and it has saved the lives of many babies desperately ill. We are 
looking forward to the time when our finances will permit us to 
furnish human milk free, or at a nominal charge to deserving cases.

HISTORICAL. 



The Infants' Hospital was incorporated as * * The West End Day 
Nursery Society " in January, 1881, its first officers being Henry 
F. Allen, President; Henry C. Haven, Treasurer; and Thomas 
Morgan Rotch, Secretary. 

The original purpose was " the temporary care of children." The 
present corporate name is "Infants' Hospital," and the general 
purposes are the medical treatment of infants, the teaching and 
training of nurses and nursery maids, research work, and various 
allied purposes. 

The original hospital buildings were at 33-37 Blossom Street, 
Boston. The present building is at 55 Van Dyke Street, near the 
Harvard Medical School. 

The history of the acquisition of the new building is interesting. 
In 1902, shortly after the death of Thomas Morgan Rotch, Jr., son 
of Dr. Rotch, Doctors J. Collins Warren and Clarence J. Blake 
collected a fund of about $84,000, for the purpose of erecting a 
hospital building as a memorial to Dr. Rotch's son. The collection 
of this money was entirely outside the activities of the corporation 
itself. The amount was not sufficient to carry out the purpose. In 
1910, plans having been approved and the land purchased, it was 
decided to begin to build and at the same time to start a campaign 
for additional money to complete the undertaking. Approximately 
$85,000 was raised, and when the building had been partially 
completed a mortgage of $55,000 was placed. With the moneys 
from these two appeals and the mortgage money, the building was 
completed. Since so large a portion of the money was given for a 
Memorial, and since the Infants' Hospital was the logical institution 
to occupy and run such a building, it was conveyed to the corpora- 
tion on condition that it should be maintained and run for hospital 
purposes as a memorial building. 



6 

During the campaign for funds, numerous donations were given 
for specific purposes, such as special equipment, the interior decora- 
tion of certain rooms, the stained glass window and the marble 
table in the main entrance hall, the bronze doors, and other decora- 
tive or ornamental features. The Infants' Hospital corporation was 
thus supplied with a modern, fully-equipped, fairly expensive home 
at little cost to itself, but, nevertheless, a building which can be and 
is economically run. 

The subsequent sale of the Blossom Street property netted the 
corporation something over $35,000, which might have been applied 
on account of the mortgage, but since this came from the property 
originally given to the Hospital by. the Haven family it was deemed 
best to invest it as a Trust Fund of $25,000, known as the "Dr. 
Henry Cecil Haven Trust," and another Trust fund of $10,000, 
known as the "Elizabeth L. Douglas Memorial Fund." This plan 
was approved by Dr. Haven shortly before his death. 

The income from the estate of Dr. Rotch, who died in 1914, will 
eventually become available for the Hospital, if, when it becomes 
payable, the corporation is occupying and maintaining the Memorial 
Building as an Infants' Hospital. At present the entire net income, 
amounting to between four and five thousand dollars a year, is dis- 
tributed to life beneficiaries. 



KEPORT OF ACTING MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



During the year 1917 the Hospital has continud to run to its 
full capacity. 728 babies have been admitted to the wards. It did 
not seem advisable to crowd the wards, therefore the number of 
beds has been reduced from sixty to fifty in order to secure better 
ventilation for each patient. The usual plan of two house physi- 
cians, serving for a period of three months, has been maintained. 

The teaching of nurses and nursery maids has been carried out as 
usual and thirty nurses have received their diplomas. Seventy- 
eight nursery maids have finished the course of instruction in the 
Hospital and have been placed in private families to care for well 
babies. 

The work of the Social Service Department in investigating and 
improving the conditions in the homes, when necessary, has been a 
most important factor in making the work done for the babies while 
in the hospital of permanent benefit to the community. 

When war was declared by the United States, many of our offi- 
cers who had been for some time members of the Red Cross, were 
suddenly called to active service in Europe. Our Medical Director, 
Dr. Derby, the Superintendent, Miss Gregg, and two Head Nurses, 
Miss Walsh and Miss Diamond, left us in May and June. 

Dr. Hammond, Visiting Physician, has already entered the United 
States Naval Reserve force, and Dr. Percy later enlisted for Pedi- 
atric work in France. The President of the Hospital took over 
the work of the Medical Director. Miss Farquhar, Head Social 
Worker, consented to take charge of the Hospital until a new super- 
intendent could be found. We were fortunate in obtaining her 
services owing to the fact that she had been for seven years super- 
intendent of the Hospital, having resigned in 1914 to take up social 
work. The work of the Social Service Department was continued 
in spite of difficulties. Miss Dunn, a most efficient volunteer 



8 

worker, who has been connected with the Department since it was 
first organized, assumed the direction. In December we secured 
the services of Miss Alice K. Buggies, a graduate nurse of the 
Massachusetts General Hospital, who, from many years experience 
as hospital superintendent, is well fitted for the position. 

In addition to the extra-mural service which the hospital renders 
through its various departments, the reports of which are herewith 
submitted, the information derived and disseminated by the eight 
medical house officers, and the twenty to thirty graduate students in 
each year, in addition to the teaching to undergraduates in the Har- 
vard Medical School, is a valuable contribution, as is also the origi- 
nal study of members of the hospital staff contributed to medical 
publications and in this year the text book on Pediatrics by Dr. C. 
Hunter Dunn which has already reached a second edition. 

Dr. George S. Derby, on account of the probability of a long 
war service abroad, felt constrained to resign the position of Medical 
Director which he has so valuably and earnestly filled, but this 
resignation was not accepted, the Board of Directors preferring to 
provide such substitute service as might be necessary during his 
absence. 

Clarence John Blake, 

Acting Medical Director. 



REPORT OP THE PHYSICIAN-HST-CHIEF. 



The general character of the work in the wards carried on by the 
Medical Staff has been described in previous reports, and has not 
changed during the past year. Certain changes in the Hospital 
routine, however, have been made necessary by the conditions im- 
posed upon us by the war. In May, Dr. Hammond of the Visiting 
Staff, an officer in the Naval Medical Reserve, was called for active 
duty. In November Dr. Percy left us for duty in France. Owing 
to the scarcity of physicians competent to take part in the work of 
the Infants' Hospital, there is no prospect of replacing these losses, 
and consequently the medical Visiting Staff is reduced to half its 
former membership, consisting only of the Physician-in-Chief and 
the Associate Physician. 

Meanwhile, the medical work has not diminished in amount, and 
although the Visiting Staff is willing to give an increased amount 
of time to hospital work, there is an increased pressure of outside 
work also brought on by the war conditions. Under these circum- 
stances we have been obliged to consider what branches of our hos- 
pital work could best be curtailed. First in importance in the med- 
ical work of the Hospital is the actual care of the babies, those 
measures in diagnosis and treatment which lead to the most speedy 
and permanent cure of each case. Obviously no curtailment here 
is possible, and the corporation may rest assured that the Staff will 
recommend closing the wards rather than allow any lessening of the 
thoroughness of this part of our work. Second in importance 
stands the teaching of our nurses, and of the undergraduate students 
and physicians who come to this hospital for special instruction in 
the medical care of babies. This work, also, can still be carried on. 

There are, however, many measures which are highly desirable 
for thoroughness of record, but which are not essential for the prac- 



10 

tical cure of our cases. These measures include the daily recording 
of observations, and routine physical and laboratory examinations 
made chiefly for the purpose of securing scientific thoroughness, but 
not essential for diagnosis and treatment. We have been obliged 
to curtail much of this work, and may be obliged to curtail still 
more in the future. The permanent scientific value of the Hospital 
records will suffer somewhat from this necessity of war time, but 
our babies will not suffer. Of course any real scientific research on 
the many problems presented by the work of the Hospital will be 
impossible under present conditions. 

Up to the present time we have had no difficulty in recommend- 
ing appointments to the House Staff. If in the future war condi- 
tions make it impossible to obtain House Officers, we shall be con- 
fronted by a much more serious situation than at present. 

The Medical Staff has continued to study the problem of reducing 
the hospital mortality. The so-called cross infections, involving the 
upper respiratory tract, always constitute a serious factor in the mor- 
tality of an infants' hospital, and the battle against them has been one 
of the chief activities of the Medical Staff. Conditions have improved 
greatly since my last report. The installation of cubicles in the 
wards has proved of great value, not only in lessening the possibility 
of the transmission of an air-borne contagion, but also in calling the 
attention of the nurses to the special precautions which should be 
carried out with a baby placed in a cubicle, in order to prevent the 
transmission of contact infections. The prevalence of cross infec- 
tions is much fostered by overcrowding, and the taking of the lec- 
ture room for additional ward space to be used only for babies hav- 
ing no sign of infection of the upper respiratory tract, has also 
proved a measure of great value. The Medical Staff is deeply 
grateful to the cooperation given by Miss Farquhar during her in- 
cumbency as superintendent in working out these problems of pre- 
venting cross infection. 

As far as the specific contagious diseases are concerned, I am 
happy to say that during the past year there has been no time when 
the presence of a contageous case has compelled us to go into quar- 



11 

an tine. This is a remarkably good record and is greatly to the 
credit of the House Staff, upon whose members fall the chief respon- 
sibility in preventing the entrance of a contagious disease. 

The members of the Staff have been engaged during the past 
year in studying certain other questions connected with the problem 
of infant mortality, and have worked out several new methods of 
treatment, the final value of which is not yet proved, but which ap- 
pear to have given results which are very promising for the future.

Physician-in- Chief.

As seen by the above statistics, the Hospital has been run to its 
full capacity during the year. There was a slight gain in admissions 
over last year, with the same number of cribs, and many days 
having all cribs occupied. We were obliged occasionally to refuse 
patients for lack of room. 

Work in the X-Ray and Pathological Laboratories has increased 
materially, and one of our many needs is a salaried pathologist and 
bacteriologist. 

There have been several changes in the Nursing Department. 
At present the Staff consists of one (1) Director, two (2) Head 
Nurses, one (1) Night Supervisor, one (1) Post-Graduate Nurse, 



13 

one (1) Attendant, ten (10) Pupil Nurses, and fourteen (14) 
Nursery Maids. The usual amount of teaching has been carried on. 
Twenty-six (26) Nurses and eighteen (18) Nursery Maids have 
completed their course. The affiliations with the New England 
Baptist, Faulkner, and Cooley-Dickinson Hospitals have been con- 
tinued, but the New England Deaconess Hospital has been obliged 
to withdraw for the present because of the lack of nurses. 

We wish to extend our thanks to the Physicians who have so 
kindly given lectures to the Nurses and for medical aid given during 
the illnesses. 

We continue to give lectures and demonstrations to the Simmons 
College students. 

The Social Service Department, Ladies' Aid Committee and Wet 
Nurse Directory have all given valuable aid during the year, as will 
be seen by their reports elsewhere. 

Alice K. Ruggles, 

Superintendent. 



REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT. 



The work of the Social Service Department has continued through- 
out the year, in spite of many difficulties caused by the war. The 
Head Worker was obliged in the early part of the year to assume 
the responsibility of the Hospital when the Superintendent, who was 
already a member of the Red Cross, was suddenly called away. 
Miss Anna C. R. Dunn, our volunteer worker, who for several 
years has given generously of her time and added greatly to the 
efficiency of the Department, kindly consented to act as Head 
Worker. We are, therefore, greatly indebted to Miss Dunn for the 
greater part of this report. 

From the year 1916, 483 cases were carried over. During 1917, 
630 were referred to the Social Service Department, and 6 were 
re-opened, making a total of 1,119. Of these, 580 were closed, 
including those who died in the Hospital, those who died after re- 
turning home, and 68 who were "lost." Those who are counted 
as "lost" include babies who have been sent from outlying cities, 
whose parents or the doctor in charge have not replied to two or 
more letters of inquiry, many who have gone beyond visiting reach, 
leaving no address, and others who have moved, whom we know 
are still in the vicinity, but where every clue to their whereabouts 
has been followed in vain. 

The work of the Department has followed the same lines. The 
home conditions of all ward cases are ascertained while the baby is 
in the Hospital, and when necessary a plan is made to insure good 
after-care. After discharge the baby is visited as often as is neces- 
sary, a^id in all cases either a visit is made or a routine report 
obtained at periods of one month, seven months, and nineteen 
months after discharge. 

The organization and routine of the Department have been im- 



15 

proved during the year. As soon as the workers have sufficient 
knowledge of the home conditions of a patient, a perforated sheet 
of paper is placed with the medical chart. On one half is written 
whatever information is considered essential that the visiting phy- 
sician should know concerning the plans for the baby's after-care. 
On the other half the physician writes any instructions or recom- 
mendations as to the medical care which should be continued after 
the patient leaves the Hospital. This includes the date on which 
the patient should be seen by his doctor or should report to an Out- 
Patient Department. This date, in addition to the instructions for 
the making of the milk modification, is written on the slip which is 
given to the mother, as it has been found that the written word has 
more effect than oral instruction c> to report in three days." It was 
also found that many mothers lose the instruction slips or put them 
away without looking at them. Hence, a duplicate slip is given to 
the Social Service Department when a baby is discharged, and when 
possible a nurse is sent within forty-eight hours to demonstrate to 
the mother the exact method of preparing the food, the care of 
utensils, etc. These changes have added much to the efficiency of 
the work. 

In the large majority of cases the home conditions are so good 
that it is possible to discharge a baby to his parents with reasonable 
assurance that he will receive good care. In many, however, where 
perhaps the mother is ill, or the father has deserted, and particularly 
in the case of illegimate babies, some provision has to be made. It 
is here that our co-operation with other agencies is closest. But all 
agencies, especially those placing babies in boarding homes, are busy 
and overworked. Delays occur. We are obliged to ask the phy- 
sicians to hold the babies longer than their medical condition requires. 
This may prevent the admission of a very sick baby ; but we have 
found that discharging a patient before a proper plan is ready to be 
put in operation merely results in his readmission, and the realization 
that the work of the Hospital has gone for naught. 

One of the results which we feel is obtained by our frequent visits 
to the homes of the babies is a better understanding of the work 



16 

of the Hospital by the parents. They are often surprised that the 
Hospital takes so much interest for so long a period. The letters, 
too, which we receive in reply to our inquiries frequently contain 
photographs showing fine specimens of babyhood, and words of 
grateful appreciation. 

The monthly meetings of the Social Service Committee are stimu- 
lating. The interest shown in our work is encouraging, and the 
advice given on our more difficult problems is very helpful. 

Certain changes have been made in the clerical department. We 
have also benefited by the services of Miss Bennet, a member of the 
Junior Ladies' Aid Committee, who gives three mornings a week to 
typewriting. Once more, this report cannot be closed without 
mention of the devoted services of the assistants in the Department.

KEPOET OF THE TREASURER. 



During the year 1917, owing to the war and the general financial 
situation throughout the country, no general appeal for funds was 
made. In June of that year we received from the estate of Mrs. 
George A. Draper an unrestricted legacy of $10,000, and it was 
deemed best to use this to cover the deficit in our 1917 income. 
It is hoped that a like sum may be eventually returned from income 
to principal and invested as the "Draper Legacy." 

Late in 1917 it was decided to make an appeal to the public for 
money, so that we might keep the Hospital open to its capacity 
during the year 1918. Mrs. J. Gardner Bradley, as Chairman of a 
Committee, consented to take the matter in charge. The very 
gratifying report of this Committee (although not a part of the ac- 
tivities of the year 1917) is made a part of this Annual Report, and 
will be found herein. For the success of this appeal the Hospital 
is deeply indebted to Mrs. Bradley and those who so ably assisted 
her. It should be borne in mind, however, by all persons interested 
in the welfare of the Hospital, that although (unless the unforeseen 
should happen) sufficient funds are in sight to take care of the 1918 
running expenses, nevertheless no effort should be spared to reim- 
burse the Hospital for the 1917 deficit, and to anticipate the current 
expenses of future years. Funds not needed for current expenses 
can and should be invested as endowment, for until we have an 
adequate endowment fund our Annual Appeal must continue.

Report of the Secretary. 

The Ladies' Aid Committee has held its meetings regularly the 
first Tuesday of every month. The following people spoke at the 
meetings : Dr. Derby, Dr. Dunn, Dr. Howell, Mr. Robert W. 
Seymour, Miss Farquhar and Miss Wilson. We voted to raise the 
dues of the active members, making all dues $2.00. We also 
found it necessary to have more stringent rules for the Cutting 
Committee. For an entertainment in the spring, we gave some 
tableaux. We felt it wiser, considering the higher cost of materials, 
to buy them six months in advance for the coming year, which 
necessitated taking $743.85 from the proceeds of the tableaux, leav- 
ing $765.80 which was sent to the Treasurer of the Hospital. We 
also asked the Executive Committee of the Hospital if in the future, 
we could spend the money we raised in some specified way, subject 
to their approval, rather than have it go into the running expenses 
of the Hospital as heretofore, which request was granted. 

In the summer, Miss Wilson, who had been with us so long, left 
to be married, and we sent her a present of money. The Board of 
Directors of the Hospital have paid us the compliment of taking five 
of our members on the Board and three of them on the Executive 
Committee, which we greatly appreciate. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rachel B. Jackson, 

Secretary.

kets, 2 dozen nurses' sheets, 2 dozen nurses' pillow slips, 24 nurses' bath towels, 
14 large aprons for nursery maids. 



As acting Chairman, Mrs. Stillman reports for the Social Service 
Committee : 

The monthly meetings of the Committee have been held at the 
Hospital with fair regularity. Owing to the absence from town of 
some of the members, the attendance has not been very large, but 
those who were present have shown great interest in the work of 
the Social Service Department. Besides considering questions per- 
taining to the management of the Department, the Committee is 
presented with the more difficult problems arising in the work, ad- 
vice is sought by the workers, and discussions are held. Reports 
of other cases, which it was necessary to decide between the meet- 
ings, are also given. The Committee feels that these meetings are 
of mutual benefit, as the workers have many knotty problems to 
solve, and the members are glad to be in close touch with the work 
that is being done. 



Mrs. Bradley reports for the Nursery Maids' Committee : 
Owing to the War, the Hospital has had three Superintendents 
in the last year, which has made the meetings of this committee 
rather irregular and it was only during the first few months that 
much was accomplished. 

The committee has been faced with the difficult problem of high 
wages and it will be forced in the coming year to work out some 
scheme to make the girls register from the Hospital after gradua- 
tion for a period of time and keep their wages somewhere within 
reason .

WET-NURSE DIRECTORY. 



The Wet-Nurse Directory, which is still located at 63 Binney 
St., Boston, was started in 1910 and has been under the direction 
of the Infants' Hospital since April 22, 1914. 

Our object in taking wet-nurses is directly to supply healthy hu- 
man milk to babies who are ill and for some reason are deprived of 
their own mother's milk. At the same time we have an opportu- 
nity of helping the young woman, who has become a mother out of 
wedlock, or a deserted wife, who has to support herself, and often 
one or two children. 

The mother and baby are examined by an Infants' Hospital phy- 
sician and a Wasserman test made, and no case is accepted unless 
it is found to be free from infectious diseases. During the year 
which this report covers, sixty-two new applications were received 
at the Directory. Twenty-six of these were not admitted for medi- 
cal reasons ; making a total of thirty-six mothers with babies ac- 
cepted. 

While living at the Directory the mothers are taught personal 
hygiene, the care of their babies, and light housework. They are 
allowed a great deal of time with their babies, in order to develop 
the responsibilities of motherhood. It is a rule of the Directory, 
that the baby shall not be separated from its mother. 

There is a staff of three workers at the Directory, one of whom 
is a Social Worker, who learns the history of each case, and who 
is at the Directory daily between eleven and one o'clock. She is 
notified if any difficulties arise, in order that an effort may be made 
to set things right for the employer as well as for the wet-nurse. 
There is also a House Matron, who lives at the Directory and acts 
as House Mother to the wet-nurses, and her assistant who helps in 
chaperoning the girls, and in assisting them in transportation when 
called to private families.

The expense of caring for the wet-nurses at the Directory is very 
large, as they need a great deal of personal attention and training. 
They are frequently run down from lack of sufficient food during 
pregnancy, and so are often in need of a most generous and nour- 
ishing diet. On leaving the Directory each mother is assisted indi- 
vidually and helped to the kind of work for which she is best fitted, 
through the co-operation of the Society that has referred the case, 
or the Society for Helping Destitute Mothers and Infants. 

The charge for a wet-nurse is $15 a week, which is paid direct 
to the Treasurer. Of this, $8 goes to the mother, and $7 to the 
Directory, so that it may be put as nearly as possible on a self-sup- 
porting basis. In special cases a reduction of the charge is made 
to people of limited means (the sum reduced being deducted from 
the $7 paid to the Directory). Drawn breast milk at $ .50 an 
ounce may be obtained at the Directory, when advised by a physi- 
cian, to tide over a critical case. The demand for drawn breast 
milk has increased, during the past year, to such an extent that it 
was found necessary to equip a room where the milk could be ob- 
tained and properly prepared for transportation . The milk is imme- 
diately poured into sterile bottles which are packed in ice for delivery 
to the home of the sick baby. In so far as possible the usual policy 
of supplying the Infants' Hospital wards with two wet-nurses has 
been maintained. 

When a wet-nurse is no longer needed in a family she returns to 
the Directory, where she remains pending another call ; or if no 
longer able to nurse a baby, until a plan for her future can be 
made. 

From January 1 to December 31, 1917, fifty-eight families were 
supplied with wet-nurses for sick babies, and as many as fifty-two 
families were supplied with drawn breast milk. In no case has the 
child of the wet-nurse been separated from its mother, thus giving 
the chiM an opportunity in life which it probably would not other- 
wise have had. It has been found in a majority of cases that the 
mothers form a lasting affection for their babies when they are kept 
together the first half year of life. The employer is asked to en- 



31 

courage the young mother to stand by her baby, and it is gratifying 
to say that, in most instances, they have done so with hearty co- 
operation. 

The Directory is the only institution of its kind in New England, 
and it has saved the lives of many babies desperately ill. We are 
looking forward to the time when our finances will permit us to 
furnish human milk free, or at a nominal charge to deserving cases.

1918 APPEAL. 



March 25, 1918. 

Although the money is still coming in, I herewith submit u report 
to date of the Appeal Committee. 

The receipts now amount to $29,760.35 

On January 7th an appeal was published on the front page of 
practically all the Boston newspapers, with the exception of the 
JVews Bureau and the Boston American, which pu 1 'isiWit r, <:n- 
side, asking for $25,000 for the running expenses of the Hospital for 
the year 1918 This was closely followed by a newspaper story, 
which was published in whole or in part by the newspapers, and since 
then the Transcript, Traveler, Post, Globe, Advertiser, and 
Herald have given us further write-ups, some of them with pictures. 
Also, the newspapers have been very generous in publishing weekly 
lists of the contributors since the campaign opened. This was all free 
publicity, with the exception of the advertisements above-mentioned. 

A printed circular with a facsimile of the advertisement was then 
sent out to a mailing list of 5,000 names from Saturday, January 
12th, to Tuesday, January 15th. 

To back up these circulars twenty-five members of the Ladies' 
Aid Committee kindly wrote personal notes of solicitation to about 
125 people, most of whom had never given to the Hospital before, 
and we cannot be too grateful to Mrs. Frederick S. Mead, Chairman 
of the Massachusetts Branch of the Woman's National Civic 
Federation, who wrote 350 signed letters, which were sent out with 
our appeals to a list of the Surgical Dressings Committee who had 
worked in the Draper Ward the winter before it was opened. Also, 
the Directors and Officers of the Hospital have been most kind in 
writing many personal letters, with excellent results. 

The printing was done by the McGrath-Sherrill Press at cost, 
and the envelopes were supplied by the John Carter Co. at cost. 



42 

The paper on which the circulars were printed was given by the 
Geo. W. Wheelwright Paper Co. Miss M. O. Porter rendered 
valuable -services in connection with the revision of lists and mail- 
ing. The total cost of the campaign was $541.23, an itemized state- 
ent of which follows. Owing to the kindness of Mr. Thomas B. 
Gannett this entire cost has been underwritten so that every penny 
received has gone directly to the Hospital. 

I want to extend my thanks to my Committee and to everyone 
who has helped make this campaign the success it has been. 

Mabel Warren Bradley, 

Chairman.

EEPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 






The number of patients treated in the Hospital during the year 
1918 was somewhat larger than that in 1917. It would have been 
considerably larger if it had not been for the epidemic of influenza. 
It was impossible to avoid the taking of a certain number of cases 
of influenza into the Hospital. It did not seem fair, however, to 
expose babies without influenza to infection with it ; so no babies, 
except those seriously ill, were admitted at this time, all babies 
coming simply for regulation of their diet being excluded. This, of 
course, materially cut down the number of patients admitted. 

It has been very difficult to carry on the medical work of the 
Hospital during the past year, because of the absence of so many 
physicians on account of the war. Doctors Dunn and Howell have 
carried the work on alone, sacrificing themselves in every way in 
order that the work of the Hospital might not suffer. Their work 
was further hampered, except for short periods of time, by the lack 
of competent house-officers. At no time during the year was the 
House Staff complete, the work being carried on in large part by 
students in the fourth class of the Harvard Medical School. Fur- 
thermore, the illness of many of the nurses during the influenza ep- 
ipemic made the carrying on of the work still more difficult. Nev- 
ertheless, the medical work of the Hospital has been very well done 
under the circumstances. The patients have been well taken care 
of, and have not suffered in any way as the result of the limitations 
in the Staff. Medical students have been taught as usual. Very 
few graduates, however, have come to the Hospital during the past 
year. The part of the medical work which has suffered has been 
the scientific side, as it has been impossible to carry on any contin- 
ued investigations. The records of the Hospital have been kept 



6 

better, however, during the past six months that ever before, be- 
cause a full-time stenographer has been put on them. They have 
been brought up to date, and kept up. It is probable that most of 
the physicians, who are now in the service in the army and navy, 
will return during the next six months. It is hoped that it will then 
be possible to increase the number of the Staff so that it will be able 
not only to take proper care of the babies, but also to resume ori- 
ginal investigations. 

The pathological work of the Hospital has not been what it should 
have been in the past, owing to the lack of a pathologist and prop- 
er assistance. Dr. S. Burt Wolback, Associate Professor of Bac- 
teriology and Pathology at the Harvard Medical School, has recent- 
ly been appointed pathologist to the Hospital, and provision made 
for assistance to him in his work. This side of the Hospital's work 
will, therefore, without question be better taken care of than in the 
past. 

The Hospital is very fortunate in having the services of Miss Alice 
K. Ruggles as Superintendent. Nothing but praise can be said of 
her management of the Institution. She has sacrificed herself in 
every way for it. Among other things, she personally, without as- 
sistance, except for the aid at times of a nursery maid, took care 
night and day of sixteen of the nurses and nursery maids ill with 
influenza, at the same time superintending the work of the Hospital. 

The Training Schools for Nurses and Nursery Maids have been 
continued. Several new affiliations with other hospitals have been 
entered into by the Training School for Nurses. Miss Susan Dur- 
kee, a graduate of the Boston Floating Hospital, has been in charge 
of the teaching of both nurses and nursery maids during the past 
few months. 

The work of the Social Service Department, now in charge of Miss 
Anna C. R. Dunn, who gives her services, has, in spite of the war, 
not, been curtailed. The work done by this Department is most 
thorough and most valuable. It follows up the babies after they 
leave the Hospital, sees that they are in proper hands, and that the 
home conditions are such that the babies can have the proper care. 



The expenses of the Hospital have increased during the year, be- 
cause of the general increase in the price of all supplies and in wa- 
ges. It is probable, unfortunately, that they will increase further 
during the coming year. Expensive, but absolutely necessary, re- 
pairs have been made to the facade. New bath rooms have been 
installed, each of which saves at least an hour a day in the work of 
the ward with which it is connected. The changes in these rooms 
were paid for by a special gift to the Hospital. The admission of 
private patients has been given up, because of insufficient accommo- 
dations for them and an insufficient working force. 

A new contract has been entered into between the Hospital and 
the Directory for Wet Nurses. Under the present contract, the 
Hospital receives a considerable amount of breast milk daily for its 
patients. This breast milk is of the greatest importance to the Hos- 
pital — so important that it would not be justifiable for the Hospital 
to take babies unless it had it. 

The results obtained in the Hospital during the year have been 
satisfactory, when the difficulties under which the work was carried 
on are taken into consideration. There is every reason to expect a 
higher standard and greater accomplishment in the ensuing year. 

John Lovett Morse, 

Medical Director. 



REPORT OF THE PHYSICIAN-IN-CHIEF. 



There has been little change in the character of the medical 
work at the Infants' Hospital during the past year. Our very small 
Staff has prevented us from doing much more than keeping up the 
routine of caring for the actual medical needs of our babies, and 
we have been obliged to devote our attention exclusively to saving 
the lives of as many babies as possible and sending them out in as 
good condition as possible. At times the work seems very discour- 
aging, because so many babies do not come in to us until their 
condition is practically hopeless. At other times we are encouraged 
by cases which, seemingly hopeless on admission, are apparently 
saved by the resources of this hospital. The use of the Hot Room, 
kept at 80 degrees, has proved a very valuable weapon during the 
past year, and we have come to use it more and more in the treat- 
ment of a certain class of cases. I should say that, next to the 
human milk which we get from the Wet-nurse Directory, the Hot 
Room is the most important single life-saving measure at our 
disposal. 

Early in October the prevailing epidemic of influenza struck the 
Hospital heavily, and a large proportion of our nursing force were 
attacked. Fortunately there were no deaths in the Hospital from 
this disease among the Hospital personnel. This good result has 
appeared to me to be mainly due to the promptness with which the 
executive officers of the Hospital recognized the cases and placed 
them under medical care, and also to the good nursing which they 
received. Both in the first outbreak of the epidemic, late in Sep- 
tember and early in October, and again in December, we had a 
great many cases of influenza and pneumonia in the wards. 
Although we used every available measure to prevent the spread 



9 

of the disease within the Hospital wards, I did not feel justified 
under the conditions then obtaining in exposing ordinary feeding 
cases, and cases which were not very sick, but which had only come 
to us for diagnosis, to the risk of possible infection. For this reason 
I advised the temporary closing of the wards to the admission of all 
cases except influenza cases and those in which the need of hospital 
care was sufficiently great to outweigh the possible risk of acquiring 
influenza in the Hospital. I am glad to report that very few cases 
contracted influenza in the Hospital wards, and of these only two 
were fatal. The mortality of the cases in infants did not appear to 
be any higher than our average mortality from broncho-pneumonia in 
other years. 

The principal work of the Staff during the past year has been a 
continued study of the causes of the Hospital mortality, with a view 
to devising every possible means of lessening our death rate. I 
have spoken in previous reports of the role which contagious in- 
fections play in the mortality of an Infants' Hospital. During the 
past year there has been a great improvement in the technique of 
our nursing ; and while I cannot speak statistically, it is the im- 
pression of the Medical Staff that the prevalence of cross infection 
has been greatly diminished. I wish to take this opportunity of ex- 
pressing my appreciation of the co-operation which I have received 
from the executive officers of the Hospital in carrying out various 
improvements in our methods. 

There is, however, still more to be done if we are to realize an 
ideal condition in which the danger of cross infection is reduced to 
an absolute minimum. To do this we shall need to carry out in 
our wards a strict aseptic nursing technique, such as is used in the 
best contagious hospitals. Such a technique is already in use with 
cases which are known to be sources of cross infection. In an 
Infants' Hospital, however, every baby is a possible source of in- 
fection, and this strict nursing technique should be employed 
throughout the wards. This will require a larger nursing force 
than we have at present ; in fact, a larger force than can be housed 
in the present building. The ideal condition which I have in mind 



10 

for the future is to have a separate building for the housing of all 
our nursing force, in order that we may use this entire building for 
the care of babies. This will enable us to have fully adequate 
resources of isolation, and to have a nursing force large enough to 
carry out the technique which I have in mind. Certain criticisms 
have been made as to the plan of the Memorial Building as adapted 
to the care of infants. Speaking for the Medical Staff, I am of the 
opinion that the faults designated by these criticisms are compara- 
tively easily remediable. The plan of the top floor, now used by 
the nursing force, is admirably adapted to the peculiar requirements 
of an Infants' Hospital. Admirable provisions could there be made 
both for the isolation of infectious cases and for open-air treatment. 
I believe that if we could move out our nursing force and use the 
present building entirely for the care of babies most of the apparent 
faults of this building would disappear, and it could easily be made 
an ideal building for its purpose. 

Charles Hunter Dunn, 

Physician-in- Chief.

During the year, there has been a slight increase in admissions, 
which would have been greatly increased if we had not been obliged, 
during the influenza epidemic, to limit the number of babies simply 
requiring regulation of feeding to those desperately ill. 

We have run at full capacity most of the year, with the exception 
of July and August, and have been obliged, occasionally, to refuse 
patients for lack of room.

their affiliation, temporarily, but their place was filled early in the 
year by the Cottage Hospital of Woodsville, N. H. One nurse 
was withdrawn from the Baptist Hospital, leaving us two nurses affil- 
iating there, but we took on a new affiliation with the Chester Hos- 
pital of Cambridge, Mass. We now have eleven affiliating nurses 
and fourteen nursery maids. One head nurse resigned for over- 
seas duty. Her place was filled by a post-graduate, then taking the 
course here, and she has continued to remain. The training-school 
curriculum was very much interrupted during the last -of September 
and the greater part of October by the influenza epidemic. Since 
then the schedule has been carried out. 

The Ladies' Aid Committee has furnished the usual supply of 
clothing, supplemented materially by furnishing new hair mattresses 
for all the infants' beds ; supplying the nurses with current litera- 
ture and moving two lavatories from the bathing rooms to the wards 
and furnishing the necessary fixtures. 

We have also had the gift for repairs and changes in the bathing 
rooms, making, them more modern and efficient. One of the Staff 
was given $150.00 to use as needed, which was spent for X-Ray 
and other apparatus. 

We extend our thanks to the physicians who have so kindly given 
lectures to the nurses, and for medical aid when ill, and to other 
friends for donations which were greatly appreciated. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Alice Kimball Ruggles, 

Superintendent. 



REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT. 



The organization of the Social Service Department has been 
described in previous reports. The work has increased during the 
year. From 1917, 539 cases were carried over. During 1918, 
668 were referred to the Department, and 12 reopened, making a 
total of 1219. Of these 634 were closed, these including also the 
babies who died in the Hospital, babies who died after discharge, 
and those of whom we had lost all trace. Owing to a change in 
the method of keeping the statistics, the figures showing the work 
done are for the last two-thirds of the year only. The interviews 
in the Hospital numbered 335. Under " visits " are included, be- 
sides visits to the families, those to friends or agencies interested in 
our patients, and reports from the latter concerning the medical 
condition of the babies. These numbered 1324. We have had 
besides 741 communications with other agencies, either by letter or 
telephone. Our visitors have covered districts as far distant as 
Revere, Woburn, and Quincy. 

Perhaps the greatest addition to the efficiency of our organization 
has been in the routine of discharge. Heretofore there have been 
instances where a baby who was ready to leave the Hospital has 
been let go before the plans of the Social Service Department for 
its after care were complete. The mother, on being told that her 
baby was well enough to go home, has felt that she must take it 
immediately, even though not in circumstances where she could 
give it the proper care. Now this Department is notified first when 
a baby is. ready to go ; and if there is any reason why we feel that 
it would be wiser to delay sending it out, we so indicate. The 
Social Service Department then becomes responsible for seeing that 
the baby leaves as soon as possible. In all cases where another 



14 

agency is already in charge of the family situation, or has undertaken 
the responsibility of the baby, the notification goes through our 
office. 

A study of the cases which do not progress favorably after leaving 
the Hospital suggests that the most critical period is that immedi- 
ately following their discharge. The need of Hospital beds for 
acute and severe cases is so great that in order to do the greatest 
good the Hospital must send out babies who, while not requiring 
Hospital treatment, need more careful supervision than we are able 
to give. We look forward to the possibility of a Convalescent 
Home for such babies. This, too, would have been very useful 
during the influenza epidemic, when often the parents have been ill 
also, and there has been literally no one to care for the baby. It is 
difficult to place a baby in a good boarding home for temporary 
care at short notice. 

Qur Staff has been decreased by one half-time paid worker. The 
building up of a corps of volunteers has not been as successful as we 
had hoped, owing to the fact that so many people are engaged in 
work connected with the war. But with the lessening of these de- 
mands we hope to get more volunteer help. 

During the first wave of the influenza epidemic, this Department 
was asked to assist in the follow-up work of the Mayor's Emergency 
Committee by lending a worker. For a part of the time, for about 
three weeks, your Head Worker was engaged upon this. 

The meetings of the Case Committee were very irregular during 
the year. Recently this Committee has been reorganized, and con- 
siders, besides the difficulties of our work, the policies of the De- 
partment. The Executive Officers and House Staff are now included 
on this Committee. 

I regret to say that Miss Bennett, who gave generously of her 
time in the Clerical Department, has now left us. 

We have asked the Ladies' Aid Committee for gifts of clothing, 
as we are frequently asked to supply clothing for a baby going home, 
and sometimes to supplement for other children in a family. 

Too much emphasis cannot be placed upon the help and interest 



15 

of the Medical Staff and Superintendent, nor upon the devotion and 
enthusiasm of the assistants, and the pupil nurses, who receive a 
month's training in the Department.

REPORT OF THE TREASURER. 



During the year 1918, owing to general conditions, the cost of 
operation of the Hospital was considerably increased, so that our 
total expenses, including interest on the mortgage, were $46,818.50. 

The 1918 appeal was completely successful, so that from the 
proceeds of this appeal, together with the other sources of income 
and a very timely contribution from the Permanent Charity Fund 
(Boston Safe Deposit and Trust Company, Trustee), we -were able 
to pay our expenses for the year, and from the proceeds of a legacy 
from Mrs. Caroline L. Weld and money collected from maturing 
securities we were able to pay off the debt of $5,000 incurred with 
the National Union Bank and also make a payment of $10,000 on 
account of our mortgage with the Suffolk Savings Bank. This 
leaves the mortgage at $45,000 ; and I wish to urge on the friends 
of the Hospital the importance of getting this mortgage entirely paid 
within the near future. The rates of interest on mortgages of hos- 
pitals and charitable organizations are necessarily high, so that it 
is not financially Avise to invest our funds in securities netting 5 % 
and 5^ % and pay 6 % interest on a mortgage. We hope very much 
that some friends and patrons of the Hospital will come forward and 
relieve the Hospital of a portion or all of this burden. 

As there seems to be little prospect of lower expenses for the 
year 1919, it has been considered necessary by the management to 
obtain funds in advance to provide for the expenses of the year, and 
as this report is being written we are in the middle of what promises 
to be a successful campaign for $35,000, which, together with our 
invested funds and other sources of income, ought to be sufficient 
to care for our needs this year. 

It is to be regretted, however, that it is necessary every year to 
depend upon the public to meet such a large proportion of our ex- 
penses. At some time an effort should be made to increase our 
invested funds in order to form an endowment which will more 
nearly take care of the needs of the Hospital. 

Philip Stockton, 

Treasurer.

Report of the Secretary. 

The Ladies' Aid Committee held their regular monthly meetings 
on the first Tuesday of the month from October to May, with the 
same officers of the previous year. Owing to the high cost and the 
amount of the materials and supplies necessary for the Hospital now, 
the Ladies' Aid Committee have abandoned their policy of providing 
them, and their money will be spent hereafter in specific gifts. The 
gifts of the year were the fitting of the wards with crib mattresses 
and rubber coverings ; some much-needed alterations in the plumb- 
ing, consisting of changing the wash-basins from the wash-room into 
the wards and providing them with special fixtures ; and magazines 
for the nurses. Mrs. Edward Farnham Greene very kindly donated 
a desk set for the nurses' room. 

The Committee also helped in the 1918 appeal for funds, by writ- 
ing one hundred twenty-five personal notes. 

Dr. Dnnn and Dr. Howell spoke at two of the meetings. There 
was nothing further than this but the work of the usual committees, 
the reports of which follow. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rachel B. Jackson, 

Secretary.

Mrs. Homans reports for the Social Service Workers : 

The Committee was reorganized in the latter part of the year. 
The meetings had been irregularly attended, owing largely to the 
continued absence from town of some of its members. At present 
the meetings are held twice a month. The policies of the Social 
Service Department are given consideration, as well as the more 
difficult situations which arise in the work. These meetings are at- 
tended also by some of the officers of the Hospital, and are to be 
still further enlarged. 



Mrs. Bradley reports for the Nursery Maids' Committee : 
The Committee held monthly meetings during the winter and con- 
sidered the usual number of special cases. 

On May 2d, a demonstration of the work of the Nurses and 
Nursery Maids was held at the Hospital, which was attended by the 
Committee, some superintendents of other hospitals and members 
of the Ladies' Aid Committee. Immediately after, tea Avas served 
with the assistance of the Junior Branch, and in the evening the 
Nursery Maids had a party, for which the Committee provided ice 
cream and cake.

WET-NURSE DIRECTORY. 

1918. 



The Wet-Nurse Directory, at 63 Binney Street, was started in 
1910, and has been under the direction of the Infants' Hospital 
since 1914. 

The object of the Directory is to supply mother's milk to babies 
who are ill or who for some reason are deprived of their own 
mother's milk. It also affords an opportunity for unmarried or 
deserted mothers to keep their babies with them and earn good 
wages, one of the rules being that the baby shall not be separated 
from its mother. 

The mother and baby are examined by an Infants' Hospital phy- 
sician, and no case is accepted unless it is found to be free from 
infectious and contagious diseases. During the year there were 
forty-nine applications — thirty were accepted — the nineteen re- 
fused were mostly for medical reasons. 

The following changes were made during the year in the staff of 
workers : Our social worker and matron both resigned, and the 
committee decided to combine the two positions. Miss Hartwell 
was engaged as superintendent, and to our former assistant matron, 
Mrs. Connors, we gave the position of housekeeper. 

One radical change was made in the middle of the year, and so 
far has met with success. Formerly the girls while waiting in the 
Directory for cases received no wages. Now, after a week, they 
receive the same wage as if they were on a case — eight dollars a 
week; and they supply us with drawn breast milk, which enables 
us to fill small orders for breast milk and have varying amounts to 
be given away. All that is not ordered or sold by a certain time 
each day is sent over to the Infants' Hospital, or given to any 
hospital which wishes to send for it. In that way we have increased 
materially our opportunity for helping sick babies, and the girls feel 
that their time and milk is not wasted while waiting for a call to go 
on a case. 

With the exception of reducing the price of drawn breast milk 
from $.50 to $.25 an ounce, our prices remain the same. The 



28 

charge for a wet-nurse is $15 per week. Of this amount, which is 
paid to the Treasurer, the wet-nurse gets $8 and the Directory $7. 
If the wet-nurse is not taken to the employer's home, but kept at 
the Directory, and her milk drawn, the charge is $30 per week. 
Drawn breast milk at $.25 an ounce may be obtained also at the 
Directory. A room there is especially equipped as a milk-room, 
where the milk is drawn, and poured immediately into sterile bottles 
and iced. The Infants' Hospital is supplied with from 18 to 21 
ounces a day. 

The expenses of the Directory are necessarily large, owing to the 
need of so much personal attention and training for the girls and 
the necessity of much nourishing food. 

When a wet-nurse is no longer able to nurse a baby, we help her 
to find other work, usually through the Society from which she came 
to us. 

From January 1 to December 31, 1918, seventy-one families were 
supplied with wet-nurses, and forty-eight sick babies were supplied 
with drawn breast milk. The average time a family kept a wet- 
nurse was five months. During the last five months we have sold 
one thousand five hundred and forty-nine ounces of breast milk, and 
given away to hospitals one thousand two hundred and twenty-three 
ounces, undoubtedly thereby saving a large number of babies' lives. 
We hope another year to be able to increase our work in that way 
to an even greater extent.

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR. 



The number of patients treated, the average daily number of 
patients, the average days' stay per patient, and the total num- 
ber of Hospital days was almost exactly the same in 1919 as in 
1918. The death rate was, however, 9% lower. The same diffi- 
culty in carrying on the medical work of the Hospital was ex- 
perienced during the first six months of the year as in 1918, 
because of the absence of so many physicians on account of the 
war. There was also the same difficulty in obtaining competent 
house-officers during the first half of the year. Since this time, 
however, the Medical Staff has been complete and the grade of 
House-officers as good or better than before the war. 

The standard of the medical care of the patients is very high. 
The Medical Staff is, however, not large enough. The Staff is 
over-worked. The physicians on the Staff have to do so much 
routine work that they have no time to devote to original investi- 
gations and research. This one of the three main functions of a 
modern Infants' Hospital, namely, care of patients, instruction 
of physicians, nurses and nursery-maids, and research, is, there- 
fore, not being carried on as it should be. The Staff should be 
enlarged by the addition of several younger men, thus giving every- 
one, especially the more experienced physicians, time to undertake 
investigations to advance our knowledge of the diseases of infancy 
and their treatment. In order to do this they should also have 
the aid of specially trained technicians and assistants, as their 
function is to direct investigations and research rather than to 
carry out the details of the work themselves. Such specially 
trained assistants, however, demand and deserve good salaries. 
Money is urgently needed for this purpose. 

The Hospital is doing a great work in the instruction of stu- 
dents and physicians. Students of the third and fourth classes 
of the Harvard Medical School are taught in the Hospital almost 
daily and more than 100 physicians attended the clinics at the 



Hospital during the year. These graduates came from all parts 
of the United States and from such distant parts of the world 
as Australia, South America and China. The importance of this 
part of the Hospital's work cannot be over-estimated. Through 
its affiliations with the training schools of other hospitals, the 
influence of the Hospital is also widely extended. The training 
which the nursery-maids receive is also of great value to the 
public, but is, I fear, hardly appreciated as it should be. 

Miss Anna C. R. Dunn, who, at a great personal sacrifice, 
took charge of the Social Service Department during the war, has 
felt obliged to give it up now that the emergency is over, and 
Miss Carolyn A. Brown is in charge. The Hospital is very for- 
tunate, however, in that Miss Dunn continues in the department 
as a volunteer worker. The expenses of the Hospital will, how- 
ever, be materially increased by the change, as Miss Dunn most 
generously gave her services. 

The Hospital has been most carefully and economically admin- 
istered during the year under the able direction of Miss Alice 
K. Ruggles, the superintendent. The expenses have, nevertheless, 
increased, because of the general increase in the price of all sup- 
plies and in wages. There is no probability that these will de- 
crease during the coming year. In fact, they are almost certain 
to increase. In order to keep down expenses, many necessary 
repairs and improvements have been postponed. Such repairs and 
improvements cannot be postponed indefinitely, however, and must 
be carried out in the near future. 

The Hospital has ceased to register and place nursery-maids. 
They are now given diplomas after finishing their course of train- 
ing and are registered at the Young Women's Christian Asso- 
ciation. 

The arrangement entered into with the Directory for Wet 
Nurses, in 1917 has proved most satisfactory for the Hospital. 
The Directory has not only furnished the daily amount of breast 
milk which it promised, but has often given much more. It would 
be impossible to carry on the work of the Hospital satisfactorily 
without this supply. 



The work of the Hospital would be much facilitated and much 
better care could be taken of the patients if some provision could 
be made for the housing of the nurses and nursery-maids outside 
of the Hospital and the rooms which they occupy used for 
patients. Such a change would, however, be very expensive and 
is probably not feasible at present. 

Finally, the standard of the medical work of the Hospital is 
high and the Hospital is carefully and economically administered. 
To keep up the present standard, however, more money will be 
required than in the past, because of the increased cost of every- 
thing, except the services of the Medical Staff. If more, money 
is not provided, the standard must deteriorate. It cannot be 
materially improved unless much more money is available than at 
present. 

John Lovett Morse, 

Medical Director. 



REPORT OF THE PHYSICIAN-IN-CHIEF. 



The medical work of the Infants' Hospital can be divided into 
three classes. These in the order of their importance are — first, 
humanitarian work, the actual medical care of our babies ; sec- 
ond, the teaching of the medical students and graduate physi- 
cians ; third, scientific research. 

In preparing my report of the work of the past year, I have 
had in .mind chiefly an analysis of this work with a view to de- 
termining how well we have succeeded and what are our short- 
comings. 

Insofar as the second class of work is concerned, — the teach- 
ing of medical students and graduate physicians, the Hospital 
building and clinical material afford ample provision for good 
teaching and we do not need to ask the corporation for any in- 
creased facilities for this purpose. The humanitarian side of 
our work, however, stands first in importance, and this has been 
the subject of many anxious conferences among the members of 
the Medical Staff. The cases which come to the Infants' Hos- 
pital may be divided roughly into three classes. In the first 
class are cases of acute disease which come to us because they can 
be better cared for in the Hospital than at home and because the 
Infants' Hospital is the institution which has the greatest num- 
ber of beds for the care of such cases in children under two years 
of age. The facilities of the Hospital are fully adequate for the 
best care of this type of case, and for the most part these patients 
do well. I cannot see that the fatalities in this group can be pre- 
vented by any improvement in our methods. A second group of 
cases come to us for diagnosis. These are usually obscure cases, 
often of rare conditions, which require the use of the facilities of 
a modern hospital before the problems presented can be solved. 
In this part of our work also the facilities afforded by the In- 
fants' Hospital appear to be fully adequate. The third group 
comprises chronic cases, usually of functional disturbance, which 



represent the picked failures coming from a large territory. The 
Infants' Hospital is the only large Hospital of its kind in New 
England, therefore desperate cases which have failed to do well 
under ordinary medical care come to us, not only from the var- 
ious clinics of the city but from all over New England. There 
are more requests for the admission of such cases than we can 
meet, and their efficient treatment demands especial care. The 
greater part of our mortality rate comes from the cases of this 
description. While our comparatively high mortality is mainly 
due to the desperate nature of the cases sent to us, the Staff has 
always been studying this mortality with a view to its possible 
reduction. 

We have at our disposal every known means for the medical 
treatment of this class of cases. I have, however, referred in 
former reports to the prevalence in an infants' hospital of infec- 
tions of the upper respiratory tract and their effect upon the 
hospital mortality, when they occur in babies belonging to this 
third class. The prevalence of these infections and their effect 
on mortality seems to be an accepted fact in most infants' hos- 
pitals, but we have always felt it our duty to inquire whether it is 
not preventable. We have been firmly convinced that these in- 
fections are transmissible. The cubicles have done a great deal 
in lessening the incidence of these infections, but they are not 
sufficient in themselves wholly to relieve the situation. The Med- 
ical Staff feels that the Hospital has done excellent work as shown 
among other things by the fact that our mortality rate is less 
than that of the majority of infants' hospitals. The Staff also 
appreciates, however, that it would be unworthy of its office if it 
did not keep in mind the possibility of realizing the greatest 
efficiency and the highest ideals. 

Certain methods are being used in a few institutions where they 
have become firmly established. In our opinion, if these methods 
can be applied in the Infants' Hospital, they will solve the diffi- 
culty of transmissible infections. These methods require: 

(a) More room per baby. 

(b) Separation of cases into groups by disease. 



10 

(c) Separation of infected from uninfected. 

(d) A stringent aseptic nursing technic. 

The first three of these requirements can only be met by in- 
creasing the space in the Hospital building devoted to the actual 
care of babies. The fourth requirement can only be met by a 
larger nursing force than we have at present. I have heard state- 
ments to the effect that the plan of this building is not suited to 
the purposes of an infants' hospital. The members of the Staff 
who work here every day do not believe that this statement is 
true, but believe that the building is well suited to its purpose and 
that it could be made ideal for its purpose in meeting the require- 
ments outlined above. The third floor of the Hospital building 
has remarkable advantages in that it contains five suites which 
could be used as units for the isolation of disease groups, each 
having lavatory facilities. The Staff believes that with our pres- 
ent wards and the third floor in addition the Hospital building 
could be made admirably adapted to the purpose for which it was 
built. This would require new quarters for the nursing force out- 
side the Hospital building. 

The third division of the work of the Hospital, that of scientific 
research, has been impossible of realization under the conditions 
which confront the Medical Staff. Research work has for its end 
the discovery of new methods of carrying on the purely humani- 
tarian work. The intention of the founder of this Hospital, as 
understood by the Medical Staff, was that this institution should 
lead not only in the actual care of patients, but also that it should 
be productive of additions to our knowledge of the diseases and 
of the care of infants, and so add another service to the com- 
munity. I have referred in former reports to the need of salaried 
technical workers but am willing to regard this as a remote ideal 
impossible of realization at present. Some research work can 
be done by the Staff under proper conditions. One obstacle has 
been that the Medical Staff was so small that all its time was 
taken up by routine work. The return of Dr. Hammond from 
war service has already been a help in this connection, and there 
is now the possibility of further additions to the Medical Staff. 



11 

What we need most, however, is greater laboratory facilities. 
The present laboratory is adequate only for the merest routine. 
Much more room is needed if research work of value is to be 
carried on by the Hospital Staff. This need also can be met in 
the same way as the requirement for more ward space and a 
greater nursing force, namely, the housing of our nursing force 
outside the Hospital. While I realize that this may not be pos- 
sible at present, I feel it my duty to call seriously to the atten- 
tion of the corporation and directors the desirability of this 
measure in connection with the medical work of the institution.

Physician-in-Chief.

The statistics, under the same conditions, show an increase of 
two patients over last year, yet the number of patients daily has 
remained more evenly and we have not been obliged to refuse 
cases because of the over-crowded condition of the wards, except 
in the premature department. 

There have been several changes in the executive nursing force 
because of marriage or accepting other positions. 

Changes in the Social Service Department have been made, so 
we -are now on a pre-war basis with Miss Carolyn A. Brown, a 



13 

former assistant worker at the Children's Hospital, as head 
worker in charge, with volunteer workers under her. 

One hospital, because of lack of applicants, was obliged to 
withdraw its affiliation, for a time, at least, but we were very 
fortunate in having another apply at once to fill the place, be- 
sides one other which had made arrangements for an affiliation, 
so, at present, the nursing force is complete with no room, as con- 
ditions are now, for more. 

Changes have been made in the Nursery Maids' Department, 
so that, as soon as the course is finished here, the diploma is given 
and they are sent to the Y. W. C. A., where they are registered 
and placed by them. 

We have had several gifts to be used as desired in the different 
departments and an X-Ray stand and bowl from Mrs. William 
Lindsey, which have been greatly appreciated. 

The Ladies' Aid Committee have continued their good work in 
furnishing supplies, also, giving a piano to the Hospital and 
current magazines to the Nurses' Library. 

The H. C. L. has shown its results in every department here, 
as elsewhere in the country, but we have tried to curtail in every 
way, not detrimental to our work. 

We extend our thanks to all our friends who have contributed 
to the Hospital and Training School and especially to the physi- 
cians who have given their time for lectures and aid to those ill. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Alice Kimball Ruggles, 

Superintendent . 



REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT. 



The department, as now organized, consists of one paid 
worker, one full time trained worker, a pupil nurse from the 
training school and a part time stenographer. 

As in the years past, the aim of the department has been two- 
fold : First, to ascertain home conditions before the return of 
the baby to its home with the view of making other plans for after 
care in case the home proves unsuitable. In addition we try to 
plan for supervision at home and in Out Patient Departments or 
Baby Hygiene clinics for all who are not under the care of a pri- 
vate physician. 

Second, to follow such babies as have perfectly adequate care 
at home and to bring back reports as to their progress, favorable 
or unfavorable, after discharge. 

Both plans necessitate a visit to the home, if within a reason- 
able radius of the city, as soon as practicable after the admis- 
sion of the baby to the Hospital, and conferences with the parents 
to determine the type of after care required. 

It is obvious that our limited Staff cannot give close personal 
supervision to babies needing it, over an extended period of time. 
To accomplish this we depend upon the Baby Hygiene nurses in 
the city who are always interested to hear about our babies if 
they do not already know them, and to carry out our sugges- 
tions. 

The war has given increased impetus to interests in Child 
Welfare work, and as a result many of the outlying cities and 
towns have provided nurses for this work. A list of such towns 
with the name and address of the nurse in charge has been se- 
cured from the State Department of Health and is of value in 



15 

providing supervision for babies living at too great a distance 
for our visitors to cover. 

With the consciousness that sound parenthood is essential to 
sound childhood and that the health of the infant is frequently 
dependent upon that of other members of the family, we want to 
interest ourselves increasingly in the physical needs of the rest 
of the household, and by encouragement and suggestion, see- that 
they secure adequate medical care. Especially are we able to 
advise about the diet of other little children in the family and our 
Hospital connection frequently gives such advice the guarantee 
of a cordial reception. We neglect no opportunity to preach the 
gospel of milk and yet, more milk. 

During the year we have made contacts with babies in 1,262 
families, 585 from the preceding year and 664 new this year, with 
13 who had been known previously through contact with other 
babies in the family. 266 of these y,262 it is no longer necessary 
to follow. 322 have died, either in the Hospital or after discharge, 
and 57 were lost, leaving 617 actively followed at the beginning 
of the new year. 1,555 visits have been made, 1,369 to the homes 
and 186 to other agencies in the interest of the family. This 
represents only a portion of the work as much of the contact 
with other agencies is made by telephone or by letter. 

Miss Dunn, though she has resigned as head worker, has con- 
tinned generously to devote a large share of her time to the 
department. 

The Social Service Committee, o 0ns isting of four members of 
the Ladies' Aid Committee, and one menvu^ f rom the Executive 
Committee, is now meeting monthly with the depai Wiont to dis- 
cuss questions of policy and aid with suggestions in the cu^eid- 
eration of difficult family situations. We are anticipating in- 
creased efficiency through the contemplated assistance of volun- 
teers from the Junior Ladies' Aid Committee. 

Each day brings new opportunities and responsibilities. As 
the medical department understands better each year how to com- 



16 

bat physical ills, so our department aims at a better understand- 
ing of social ills and the remedies best suited to the individual 
family. 

Carolyn A. Brown, 

Head Worker.

INFANTS' HOSPITAL. 

Treasurer's Report for Year 1919. 



Together with this report is a statement of Income and Ex- 
penses and a Balance Sheet which shows that during the year 1919 

Total receipts of the Hospital were . . . . . $51,166 

The expenses of the Hospital were $51,951, so that there is a 
loss for the year of $785. Under ordinary circumstances we 
might congratulate ourselves that this loss was not greater, but 
taking into consideration the fact that an unusual effort was 
made last year to raise money from the appeal, several of our 
Directors having worked for many days almost exclusively on 
this business, and the newspapers having been called upon to 
publish free of charge much advertising and reading matter, the 
result is rather disappointing to the Treasurer. We hoped very 
much that with these efforts our appeal might raise $50,000 so 
that we could reduce the mortgage of $45,000 and still pay our 
expenses. We are now faced with a serious financial problem. It 
does not seem feasible to have an appeal of quite the same in- 
tensity annually as people will certainly get tired of it and the 
results will grow less instead of greater ; so we are attempting 
this year to raise as much as we can from direct appeals to 
former givers and from a less amount of advertising and pub- 
licity. 

It does not seem probable that enough money can be raised in 
this manner to take care of the needs of the Hospital during this 
year, and later in the year, no doubt, some other steps will have 
to be taken to meet a budget which cannot well be cut down. 
Every possible economy consistent with service has been made 
and in our Social Service Department, owing to the absence of 
Miss Dunn, the cost will be greater than before. We also have 
the mortgage of $45,000 which should be paid and we hope that 
by bringing this matter to the attention of those interested in 



19 

the Hospital some one may come forward who will be willing to 
help us. 

From the point of view of the Treasurer the operation of the 
Hospital has been entirely satisfactory; in fact, the results have 
been surprising considering the limited amount of financial sup- 
port and the great increase of costs and the difficulty of obtaining 
proper assistance at any cost. 

Following the practice suggested to us by the "Committee of 
the Permanent Charity Fund, Inc.," our books have been re- 
arranged so as to show more clearly the source of our funds and 
the distribution of their expenditure. 

Philip Stockton, 

Treasurer.

After an examination of the books of the Infants' Hospital for the year ending 
December 31st, 1919, I hereby certify: that all cash shown to have been received has 
been accounted for; that I have seen satisfactory evidence of the approval and pay- 
ment of all disbursements ; that the balance called for by the cash book was on 
deposit in the bank or was in the office; that the income earned during the year by 
investments held by the Hospital was properly accounted for; and that the financial 
statements submitted herewith are correct transcripts from the books of account 
and, in my opinion, correctly set forth the financial condition of the Hospital as at 
December 31st, 1919, and the results of its operations for the year ended at that 
date.

Report of the Secretary. 

At the November meeting, an amendment was made to Article 
IV. of the By-laws, providing for six monthly meetings instead 
of eight during the year, from November to April inclusive. 

The gifts of the Ladies' Aid to the Hospital during the year 
were ten dozen shirts and one hundred yards of diaper cloth and 
a piano for the Nurses' Library. 

The Cutting Committee, which is one of our most important 
activities, had to be enlarged to meet its growing needs. Mrs. 
Charles Richardson was appointed to assist Mrs. Harrington 
in the buying and a sub-committee was formed to attend to the 
monthly cutting. 

Owing to Mrs. Crowninshield's absence in the South every 
winter, Mrs. Homans was made chairman of the Social Service 
Committee. 

The committee of the Ladies' Aid, with Mrs. Homer B. Rich- 
ardson as chairman, gave valuable assistance to the appeal for 
money, by writing many personal notes. 

Mrs. Homer B. Richardson, as a member of the Executive 
Committee of the Hospital, was put on the Social Service Com- 
mittee of the Ladies' Aid, so that the Social Service Committee 
would have a representative at the Hospital meetings. 

The attendance at the meetings was good throughout the year. 
Those who spoke at the meetings were Miss Ruggles, Miss Dunn, 
Dr. Howell and Dr. Morse. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Rachel B. Jackson, 

Secretary.

Mrs. Homans reports for the Social Service Workers : 

The meetings of the Social Service Committee were held dur- 
ing 1919 twice monthly and were more regularly attended than 
heretofore. No meetings were held during the summer, but it was 
arranged that one or more members could be consulted at any 
time. 

Miss Anna Dunn's recommendation as to a permanent head 
worker for the department was approved by the Chairman and 
Miss Carolyn A. Brown was appointed by the Medical Director. 

Mrs. Homer B. Richardson, a member of the Executive Com- 
mittee, has been made a member of the Social Service Committee 
in order that this department may be in closer touch with the 
Executive Committee. 

Regular meetings are being held once a month during this 
winter.

WET-NURSE DIRECTORY. 
1919. 



The Wet-Nurse Directory, at 63 Binney Street, was started 
in 1910, and has been under the direction of the Infants' Hospital 
since 1914. 

The object of the Directory is to supply mother's milk to 
babies who are ill or who, for some reason, are deprived of their 
own mother's milk. It also affords an opportunity for unmar- 
ried or deserted mothers to keep their babies with them and earn 
good wages, one of the rules being that the baby shall not be sep- 
arated from its mother. 

The mother and baby are examined by an Infants' Hospital 
physician and no case is accepted unless it is found to be free from 
infectious and contagious diseases. 

Formerly the girls, while waiting in the Directory for cases, 
received no wages. Now, after a week, they receive the same 
wage as if they were on a case — eight dollars a week, and the} r 
supply us with drawn breast milk, which enables us to fill small 
orders for breast milk and have varying amounts to be given 
away. All that is not ordered or sold by a certain time each 
day is sent to the Infants' Hospital, or given to any hospital 
which wishes to send for it. In that way we have increased mate- 
rially our opportunity for helping sick babies. 

With the exception of reducing the price of drawn breast milk 
from 50c to 25c an ounce, our prices remain the same. The 
charge .for a wet-nurse is $15 a week. Of this amount, which is 
paid to the Treasurer, the nurse receives $8 and the Directory 
$7. If the wet-nurse is not taken to the employer's home, but 
kept at the Directory and her milk drawn, the charge is $30 a 



29 

week. Drawn breast milk at 25c an ounce may be obtained, also, 
at the Directory. A room is especially equipped as a milk-room, 
where the milk is drawn, and poured immediately into sterile 
bottles and iced. The Infants' Hospital is supplied with from 
18 to 21 ounces a day. 

The expenses of the Directory are necessarily large, owing to 
the need of so much personal attention and training for the girls 
and the necessity of much nourishing food. 

When a wet-nurse is no longer able to nurse a baby, we help 
her to find other work, usually through the society from which 
she came to us. 

From January 1st, 1919, to December 31st, 1919, twenty- 
five mothers were admitted to the Directory. Thirteen others 
made application but were not accepted for medical reasons, 
chiefly. Forty calls for nurses were filled, forty-five calls for 
milk for babies. One hundred seventeen ounces have been given 
to the Massachusetts General Hospital, three hundred eight 
ounces to the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, fifty-eight 
ounces to the Floating Hospital, and six thousand seven hundred 
eleven ounces to the Infants' Hospital. 

Milk has been given in a few cases to families who could not 
afford to pay for it. 

The receipts from milk sold are $1,934.25 and from milk given 
$1,958.25, making a total of $3,892.50. 

The Maternity Homes and Maternity Wards in Hospitals 
have been very co-operative in sending mothers to the Directory. 

Besides helping babies in Boston and vicinity this milk has ex- 
tended into the White Mountains and has even gone across the 
continent from Maine to California. 

The Wet-Nurse Directory is a charity that is far reaching and 
has many sides. One of the doctors at the Infants' Hospital said 
to me, "You can tell your girls there is not a measure used at the 
Hospital that does the good the breast milk does." 



30 

And who can say how much good is done for these poor un- 
fortunate girls? Only He who said, "Neither do I condemn thee, 
go and sin no more."

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 



The number of patients admitted during the year was fourteen 
less than in 1919, while the number of hospital days was 1640 less 
than in the previous year. This discrepancy was due to the fact that 
the average number of days' stay per patient was cut down from 
20 to 18 by greater efficiency in administration. It was hoped that, 
by cutting down the length of each patient's stay, it would be possible 
to take care of more patients. It would have been, if more patients 
had applied, but throughout the year there have been one or more 
beds empty most of the time. It would seem, therefore, as if the 
hospital had approximately met the needs of the community for the 
care of very sick babies during the past year. The death rate, which 
was reduced 9 per cent in 1919, was lowered two per cent more in 
1920. 

The standard of the medical care of the patients has continued 
high. The Staff is still overworked, however, and has no time to 
devote to original investigation and research. Last year I spoke of 
the need of a larger Staff and of specially trained technicians and 
assistants to carry out the details of various researches, in order 
that the Hospital might fulfill all its functions, namely, the care of 
patients, instruction and research. I also called attention to the 
urgent need of funds for this purpose. At that time, it seemed 
reasonable to hope that such funds might be forthcoming. At 
present, it seems doubtful if there will be funds enough even to take 
care of patients. 

Even more students and physicians have been taught in the Hos- 
pital than in the past. More than 250 graduates, coming from all 
parts of the United States and from such distant parts of the world 
as South Africa, China, South America and the Philippines, have 
attended the clinics during the year. There is no place in this country 
which offers such an opportunity for the study of infant feeding as 
this hospital. It would be most unfortunate for the medical pro- 
fession and for the country, if this opportunity was withdrawn. 

The Hospital has been most carefully and economically admin- 
istered during the year under the able direction of Miss Alice K. 
Ruggles, the superintendent. The expenses of the Hospital, never- 
theless, increased during the year, as it was predicted that they 



would. How much they may be expected to decrease during the 
coming year, it is impossible to say. They certainly may be ex- 
pected to come down rather than go up. It is difficult to see, how- 
ever, how they can be materially reduced unless very radical changes 
are made. It would be possible to give up the Social Service Depart- 
ment, stop taking X-ray photographs, give up all but the simplest 
laboratory work, discharge the stenographer and have the staff of 
nurses keep the records, have the superintendent act as house-physi- 
cian and surgeon, and thus make considerable reduction in the 
expenses. The patients could still be taken care of after a fashion, 
as they were twenty -five years ago. It is very doubtful, however, 
if any of us would be willing to see this done. It would seem wiser 
to close the Hospital. Expenses cannot be materially reduced, how- 
ever, unless such sweeping changes are made. 

The Hospital has been very fortunate in that it has not suffered 
from a lack of nurses like most other institutions. The explanation 
is that the training which the nurses receive here is so valuable and 
so impossible to obtain elsewhere that more training schools are 
anxious to affiliate with the hospital than can be accommodated. 

The arrangement with the Directory for Wet Nurses has continued 
to be most advantageous to the hospital. It would not be possible 
to carry on the work of the hospital satisfactorily without the supply 
of breast milk which it provides. 

Finally, the standard of the medical work of the hospital is high 
and the hospital is carefully and economically administered. The 
expenses of the hospital cannot be materially reduced without making 
sweeping changes which would greatly impair the standard of the 
medical work. This standard should not be lowered, but, for the 
good of the community, should be raised even higher. 

John Lovett Morse, 

Medical Director. 



REPORT OF THE PHYSICIAN-IN-CHIEF 



In my report of last year, I presented an analysis of the medical 
work of the hospital, made with a view to determining how well 
we have succeeded and what are our shortcomings. It appeared 
that our two principal failures to realize our ideals were first, in the 
treatment of a certain class of chronic cases of functional disturbance, 
and second, in the production of research work which would be worthy 
of the Hospital. 

The failure to obtain the best possible results in the treatment of 
cases of chronic disturbance of nutrition, came from the prevalence 
in the hospital of infections of the upper respiratory tract, usually 
involving the ears, which infections we believe to be transmissible. 
The Medical Staff has devoted much time to the study of these in- 
fections and to the devising of methods of lessening their prevalence. 
Although we have been unable to carry out all the measures that 
we desired, owing to the limitations pointed out in my last year's 
report, nevertheless we feel that the results of our efforts have been 
most encouraging. We have brought about a marked reduction in 
the number of babies who contracted an infection after entering the 
hospital. I think we are justified in considering that babies who 
showed no evidence of infection for five days after entering the 
hospital, but who later became infected, contracted their infection 
within the hospital. From the opening of the hospital in 1914 until 
February, 1919, the incidence of infection in these cases was 35 per 
cent. In February, 1919, we began a systematic fight against these 
infections. From February, 1919, until June, 1920, the incidence 
of these infections was only 15 per cent. Since June, 1920, when our 
present system of care has been in full force, infection has only oc- 
curred in 7 per cent of babies admitted clean. 

The hospital mortality in 1919 was 31 per cent, and in 1920 was 
28 per cent, showing a reduction of 3 per cent. I believe that this 
reduction is mainly if not wholly due to the lessening of the prevalence 
of hospital infection, for the mortality among babies thus infected 
is as high as 25 per cent. The hospital mortality would show a 
greater reduction, were it not for the fact that we have had in the 



8 

last year an unusually large number of cases which were on admission 
either actually moribund, or in such extremely bad physical con- 
dition that their treatment was hopeless from the start. Jt must 
be remembered that the cases admitted to the Infants' Hospital 
represent the most hopeless cases in the community, the picked fail- 
ures coming from a large territory. Many physicians do not send 
us their cases until they have exhausted every means of treatment 
within their knowledge or power. It is for this reason that the 
hospital mortality is as high as it is, but nevertheless it compares 
very favorably with the mortality among babies under two years 
of age in other institutions. If we deduct from our fatal cases 
babies who died within twenty -four hours after admission, our death 
rate would be 20 per cent. The Medical Staff considers that its 
first objective is a further reduction of this mortality. 

In the matter of research, we are still hampered by too small a 
Medical Staff. Our Staff is now adequate for the best care of the 
babies, and for the work of teaching nurses, medical students, and 
graduate physicians. The Staff is, however, not large enough to 
allow us much time for research, although a certain amount of clinical 
research is now being carried on. This work, however, cannot be 
sufficiently thorough and complete under present conditions. We 
can only reach a certain point, and then laboratory facilities are 
needed if completeness is to be obtained. Unless we have increased 
laboratory facilities, and salaried technical workers, we cannot pro- 
duce research work of a value worthy of the Hospital and of its Staff. 
The Staff, has, however, carried on studies which have added to our 
knowledge of infantile tuberculosis, congenital pulmonary atelectasis, 
pyloric stenosis, thick cereals in infant feeding, spasmophilia, and 
hydrocephalus. 

We have no difficulty now in obtaining good House Officers. The 
reputation of the Hospital as a place for training in pediatrics has 
spread very widely. Applications come to me from all parts of this 
country and from Canada, sent in by men who state that they believe 
that the Infants' Hospital service is of the greatest value. 

The fact that the hospital has neither an Out Patient Department 
nor a Convalescent Home makes it necessary that our cases when 
discharged must be transferred to the care of other physicians. 



There is always a certain risk in such a change, particularly in cases 
which present very difficult nutritional problems. We have always 
endeavored to lessen the disadvantages of a change of physicians 
by transmitting to the physician who is to have the care of the baby, 
a detailed report of what we have learned and what we have done. 

In these cases the Social Service Department is invaluable in seeing 
that the babies have proper care at home, and that there is no break 
in the continuity of their treatment. Nevertheless, we have found 
that in a certain number of cases, babies discharged in good condition, 
do badly at home. It is often difficult to decide whether the fault 
lies in home conditions, or comes from a change of medical care, 
the new physician possibly not giving sufficient weight to our report 
of what was learned in the hospital. To avoid this difficulty, we 
have arranged that in certain cases babies discharged from the 
hospital shall remain under our care for a time sufficiently long to 
insure that they can do well at home. Such cases are referred to the 
Social Service Department and are visited at home by one of the 
Staff, and are not transferred to new medical care until we are sure 
that they are doing well. 

I believe that a large part of the work which the Infants' Hospital 
is doing for the community could not be duplicated in any other 
institution. The care of acute cases of self-limited disease, and the 
diagnosis of obscure conditions, might be carried on satisfactorily 
in an institution not especially designed for children under two years 
of age. But the majority of our cases present peculiar problems, 
which can only be solved by days or weeks of special study, carried 
on with the aid of the milk laboratory, wet-nurse directory, and the 
accumulated experience obtained in an institution of this kind. It 
is gratifying to feel that there is a constantly increasing number of 
cases, which seem hopeless for a long time, but which after weeks 
of study, become solved problems, and finally go home in good 
physical condition.

Physician-in-Chief.

Conditions at the hospital Eemain about the same. 

For the first time in three years, we were obliged to quarantine, on 
account of Scarlet Fever among the nurses. Three, unfortunately, 
were victims, but no cases appeared among the babies. They were 
very mild cases without complications and the nurses were all re- 
turned to duty in about four weeks. 

Several necessary repairs were obliged to be made for the upkeep 
of the hospital, namely, painting, new sinks in the kitchen and new 
awnings for the south side of the hospital, besides many minor repairs. 
The painting and replenishing of awnings was the first large work 
done since the opening of the building. There is still much painting 
that should be attended to as soon as possible. 



11 

A few changes have occurred in the executive force, but the number 
remains the same. 

The affiliated training school now has nurses from the Faulkner 
Hospital, Jamaica Plain, The New England Baptist Hospital, The 
Cambridge Hospital and the Melrose Hospital. One hospital was 
obliged to withdraw its nurses for a short time on account of lack of 
probationers, but will resume sending them again in March. We 
have also given training in home nursing to two young women 
from Miss Windsor's Training School. The nursemaids' school is 
about the same and, as usual, we are unable to supply the demand. 

We have had several gifts from the Ladies' Aid Committee. They 
also gave a dance for the nurses and a theatre party for the nurse- 
maids, both of which were greatly appreciated. 

With careful supervision and attempt in every way to curtail, we 
have felt the high cost of living more this year than last, but we are 
looking forward to better results in the future. 

We wish to thank the governing board for their support; the 
physicians for their services, and all those who have contributed so 
kindly to carrying on the work of the hospital and to acknowledge 
the faithful services of all co-workers. 

Alice K. Ruggles, 

Superintendent.

REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 

For the Year 1920 



The Social Service Department this year has to report a rather 
radical change in its organization and policies. Early in the year, 
Miss Dunn, who had been giving full time to the work of the depart- 
ment, left for an extended period. She does not expect in the future 
to devote as much time to the work of the Hospital. As the Executive 
Committee did not feel justified in sanctioning the salary for a paid 
assistant, the scope of our work had to be curtailed to meet the 
existing situation. 

The period immediately following the infant's discharge from the 
hospital is the most critical, and it is at this period we can hope to 
accomplish the most in teaching the mother and in securing medical 
supervision for the baby either through private physician or clinic. 
Frequently mothers are careless in carrying out suggestions as to this 
medical supervision, not realizing that along this path lies the hope 
of continued health. Hence, frequent calls may be necessary before 
the object is attained. We have depended increasingly on the Baby 
Hygiene Association to look after these babies living in the city, and 
we have found the nurses eager to help in any possible way. 

This year has brought its quota of perplexing situations largely due 
to unstable family conditions and unmarried maternity, some solu- 
tion for which must be found in order to secure suitable care for the 
baby. It would seem that an increasing number of young mothers 
found it easier to board their babies and continue as wage earners 
rather than accept the humble home the husband's wages were 
adequate to provide. This, we assume is an aftermath of the war, 
as so many of our young women at that time married and continued 
their work in shop or office. We do not feel that any boarding 
home is a substitute for that which the parents should provide for 
their own children. 

We are no longer making routine visits at stated intervals for the 
purpose of obtaining reports of the physical condition of the infant 
after discharge for the Staff. However, we stand ready to secure 
such repprts on specific groups of cases if they are wanted for the 
sake of further study. 

During the year we have been in contact with 551 families, 137 
of which number were carried over from last year. A total of 1,370 



13 

visits have been made — 1,222 to the homes, and 148 to agencies, 
relatives or interested individuals. 

As in previous years, the department has had one of the pupil 
nurses for a month at a time for training and social work. This 
time of course is too brief to give her anything but the most general 
idea of the practice of medical social service. These nurses, however, 
have been without exception interested and enthusiastic in their 
desire to help the mothers and babies whom they have visited. In 
addition, by arrangement with the Baby Hygiene Association, she 
has given one afternoon weekly to their clinic, so she may know of 
the methods pursued by that organization. 

The Social Service Committee have continued meeting monthly 
during the year with the exception of the summer period, and have 
been a source of great help through advice and loyal support. 

The Junior Ladies' Aid in the fall, asked what they might do to 
be of service to the department, and it was suggested that they 
organize a motor corps to aid the department in making calls at a 
distance. As a result of this we now have the use of the motor one 
afternoon each week, which has been a great help in reaching some 
of our families who live in the surrounding towns. 

This year unemployment promises to be an outstanding factor 
among conditions which we must weigh before returning babies to 
their homes, as it seems useless to give a baby expensive care in the 
hospital and have it go back to unsuitable or inadequate food at 
home. 

To measure results seems impossible, yet if any work is worth 
while which helps to lower infant mortality, the work of our depart- 
ment must justify itself, as we continually aim to make parents more 
intelligent and home care more adequate. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Carolyn A. Brown, 

Head Worker.

INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

Treasurer's Report for Year 1920 



The Treasurer's report for the past year is most unsatisfactory. 

The expenses of the hospital were about $10,000 greater than 
the previous year, without an increase in receipts from appeals and 
donations. 

This has resulted in a deficit for the year which has been paid for 
by using funds intended to be credited to our principal account. 

In spite of the most energetic efforts, receipts continually run 
behind expenditures and unless something can be done promptly 
to remedy this condition part, at least, of the work of the hospital 
must be given up. 

Appended to this report is a statement of Income and Expenditures 
and a balance sheet as of December 31, 1920.

Treasurer.

After an examination of the books of the Infants' Hospital for the year ending December 31st 
1920, I hereby certify: that all cash shown to have been received has been accounted for; that I 
have seen satisfactory evidence of the approval and payment of all disbursements ; that the balance 
called for by the cash book was on deposit in the bank or was in the office; that the income earned 
during the year by investments held by the Hospital was properly accounted for; and that the 
financial statements submitted herewith are correct transcripts from the books of account and, 
in my opinion, correctly set forth the financial condition of the Hospital as at December 31st, 
1920, and the results of its operations for the year ended at that date.

Report of the Secretary 

During the past year the Ladies' Aid Committee has held their 
regular monthly meeting from November to May inclusive. The 
following people spoke at the various meetings: Miss Brown, Miss 
Dunn, Dr. Morse, Dr. Dunn, Dr. Howell. 

The gifts to the hospital the past year were : providing refreshment 
at a party for the nurses; the services of a sewing woman; the balance 
of the money owed on the piano for the nurses' room; and twelve 
dozen babies' shirts. 

The Cabaret held in April was the most successful ever given, and 
netted $2,876. Mrs. R. F. Clark, on her own initiative, gave a very 
successful bridge party at her house, which netted $415, $96.50 of 
which was spent on a parafine oven, much wanted for research work. 

Twenty -five dollars has been voted as an emergency fund, to the 
Social Service Department, and $10 was subscribed for the hospital, 
to join the Boston Council of Social Agencies. 

Respectfully submitted, 

R. B. Jackson,

The Social Service Committee has met monthly with Miss Brown, 
the Social Worker, to discuss questions of policy relating to the 
department, and to aid by suggestions, in the treatment of difficult 
cases. 

The time of meeting has been changed to the 'hour before the 
regular monthly meeting of the Ladies' Aid, |which has made it 
easier to secure a good attendance. 

During the summer months the Committee was too scattered to 
meet, but the chairman jwas [in [touch [with |the department and 
could [be called upon for |any emergency, j 

At the suggestion of the chairman the Ladies' Aid Comm ittee has 
voted to set apart a fund of twenty -five ($25.00) dollars, which can 
be drawn upon at the discretion of the head worker in the department.

WET-NURSE DIRECTORY 
1920 



The Wet-Nurse Directory, at 63 Binney Street, was established by 
Dr. Fritz Talbot in 1910, and has been under the direction of the 
Infants' Hospital since 1914. 

The object of the Directory is to supply mother's milk to babies 
who are ill or who, for some reason, are deprived of their own mother's 
milk. It also affords an opportunity for unmarried or deserted 
mothers to keep their babies with them and earn good wages, one 
of the rules being that the baby shall not be separated from its mother. 

The mother and baby are examined by an Infants' Hospital physi- 
cian and no case is accepted unless it is found to be free from infectious 
and contagious diseases. 

The girls receive $8.00 a week, and they supply us with drawn breast 
milk, which enables us to fill the many calls for breast milk and have 
varying amounts to be given away. All that is not ordered or sold 
by a certain time each day is sent to the Infants' Hospital, or given 
to any hospital which wishes to send for it. In that way we have 
increased materially our opportunity for helping sick babies. 

The charge for a wet-nurse is $20.00 a week, if taken to the home, 
and $30.00 a week, if maintained at the Directory. Drawn breast 
milk at 25 cents an ounce may be obtained at the Directory. A 
room is especially equipped as a milk-room, where the milk is drawn, 
and poured, immediately into sterile bottles and iced. The Infants' 
Hospital is supplied with from 18 to 21 ounces a day. 

The expenses of the Directory are necessarily large, owing to the 
need of so much personal attention and training for the girls and the 
necessity of much nourishing food. 

When a wet-nurse is no longer able to nurse a baby, we help her 
to find other work, usually through the society from which she 
came to us. 

During the year 1920, the Infants' Hospital was supplied with 8918 
ounces of breast milk; the Children's Hospital, 45 ounces; the Mass- 
achusetts General Hospital, 67 ounces; the Massachusetts Eye and 
Ear Infirmary, 144 ounces; the Boston Floating Hospital, 318 ounces; 



25 

and 212 ounces were supplied to two private cases. This makes a 
total of 9,692 ounces which is equivalent to $2,423.00. The number 
of ounces sold was 7,132, amounting to $1,783.00. 

Twenty (20) nurses were admitted to the Directory and twelve 
(12) others applied. Sixty-eight (68) calls for milk were filled and 
twenty-eight nurses were placed on cases. 

The Maternity Homes and Maternity Wards in hospitals have 
been very co-operative in sending mothers to the Directory. 

We have supplied breast milk, not only in Boston and vicinity, 
but also in other states, extending from the White Mountains even 
to California. 

The Wet-Nurse Directory is a charity that is far-reaching and has 
many sides. One of the doctors at the Infants' Hospital said to me, 
"You can tell your girls there is not a measure used at the Hospital 
that does the good the breast milk does." 

Dr. John Lovett Morse says: "No one who has not attempted to 
find a wet-nurse, or to get breast milk for a seriously sick baby, before 
the establishment of the Directory of Wet-Nurses, can appreciate 
what a boon the Directory is. Before there was a Directory for 
Wet-Nurses the baby often died before the nurse or breast milk could 
be procured. The supply of breast-milk, which the Directory fur- 
nishes to the Infants' Hospital, and the other institutions in case 
of need, is of inestimable value. It would not be possible to do 
justice to the babies at the Infants' Hospital if this supply of breast 
milk was not available."

REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 



As compared with the preceding year the work of the Infants' 
Hospital during 1921 showed few important changes. The mortality 
which was three per cent less in 1920 than in 1919, was 2.7 per cent 
lower this year than in 1920. The total mortality was 26.1 per cent 
in 1921. 

As pointed out by the Physician-in-Chief in his report for the year 
1920, a fairly high mortality in an institution of this kind is quite 
unavoidable. This situation arises from the fact that a number of 
the patients are practically moribund on admission. Considering 
the type of case coming to this institution the results are very favor- 
able. Many of the infants admitted are suffering from the severest 
grades of malnutrition, which may be of serious consequence. In 
addition to this underlying condition, many have acute infections of 
various kinds. 

There are many phases of nutrition in infants which are obscure. 
This is equally true of the disorders of nutrition to which infants are 
subject, and these conditions furnish problems which can be inves- 
tigated to particular advantage at the Infants' Hospital. In addition 
to the problems of nutrition there are forms of acute disease which 
furnish fields for research. Such investigations can be inaugurated 
after the appointment of a larger staff, comprising physicians with 
laboratory training. Needless to say, work of this kind is laborious, 
time consuming and not always fruitful, but nevertheless offers 
opportunities too great to be neglected. 

Certain changes have been made in the House Staff through the 
establishment of a combined service with the Children's Hospital. 
House Officers are now appointed for fifteen months' service, nine 
months at the Children's Hospital and six months at the Infants' 
Hospital. In addition there has been a Resident Physician appointed 
in charge of both institutions, and an Assistant Resident Physician on 
continuous duty at the Infants' Hospital. These measures will, I 
believe, prove of value in insuring prompt and efficient treatment 
for the patients, and also in aiding teaching and investigations. 



The work of caring for sick infants is, I believe, thoroughly and 
efficiently done. This is due in large part to the excellent adminis- 
tration and nursing and to the careful and accurate work of the diet 
kitchen.

Medical Director.

There is little change in the Hospital statistics from the previous 
year, with the exception of twenty more admissions and nineteen less 
deaths. 

The executive force remains the same, excepting the change of one 
Head Nurse. 

The affiliated training school includes pupils from the Faulkner, 
Baptist, Melrose, Cambridge, Chester and Maiden hospitals and we 
have two schools on our list very anxious to send pupils here.

The Ladies' Aid Committee has been especially active this year and 
have most graciously given us many donations, such as purchasing and 
attending to the cutting and making of hospital garments; paying for 
the relaying of four floors and the painting of the two large wards 
and bathing rooms; furnishing twenty -five extra chairs for the Lecture 
Hall; paying the entire salary for the Social Service Worker for the 
coming year; subscribing for current magazines for the Nurses' 
Library; a fund for taxi fares for needy patients on discharge, and 
numerous other kindnesses. 

We have endeavored to bring the expenses down and have been 
somewhat successful in some departments. 

We wish again to thank all who kindly contributed their services 
to the Hospital and to acknowledge the devoted service of all con- 
nected with the Institution. 

Alice K. Ruggles,

REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 

For the Year 1921. 



The present worker entered upon her duties in June of 1921. 

Including the work of the previous five months of the year, the 
Department records show the following statistics for the year 1921: 

We have had referred to us and actively followed 247 cases. 

The number of visits made to the homes, interested individuals and 
agencies were 1561. About one-quarter of these were visits to non- 
active cases; that is, cases which we were not obliged to follow closely. 

In brief, our aim and work have been : 

First, To ascertain the home conditions of each baby referred to 
us that arrangements may be made for its care on discharge from the 
hospital if the home is found unsuitable. 

Second, To assist the mother in following the directions given her 
by the hospital and instruct her as may be necessary in the care of her 
child. 

Third, To visit the home until it is possible to bring the child 
under the supervision of an Out-Patient Department, Child Welfare 
or Baby Hygiene clinic. 

We have found the workers and nurses representing these agencies 
co-operative in every way. 

Fourth, To interest ourselves in others of the household needing 
medical direction, realizing that the health of the child is dependent 
largely upon the health of other members of the family, and by counsel 
and encouragement see that they secure adequate care. 

The unemployment situation has been one frequently encountered 
in these past months. We have found many of our families receiving 
aid and have had occasion to refer others to proper agencies for 
assistance. In a number of instances we have ascertained that the 
baby's illness has come about through economical measures which 
the family were obliged to adopt, the milk supply being cut down and 
poor foods substituted. The Milk Fund in such cases has been of 
invaluable assistance to us, and these babies upon their return home 
have thus been assured continuance of proper feeding. 



10 

A most perplexing problem is the baby who no longer needs insti- 
tutional care but is much in need of good convalescent care, which in 
many instances he cannot receive at home. Unfortunately, for lack 
of other accommodation, several of such babies have had to return 
directly to their homes. 

The Social Service Worker has been assisted by a pupil nurse sent 
to the Department for a month's training in social work. These 
nurses have been interested and enthusiastic workers and have been 
a great aid to the Department. 

The Social Service Committee of the Ladies' Aid have held their 
usual monthly meetings with the worker, and their interest, advice 
and loyal support have been much appreciated. 

The Emergency Fund given by the Ladies' Aid to be used in time 
of special need has proved of valuable assistance. 

The Department has been favored with the use of a car one after- 
noon a week loaned by a member of the Junior Ladies' Aid. This 
has saved us much time and enabled us to make long distance calls 
which otherwise might not have been accomplished. 

Each day brings its problems to solve and opportunities for service. 
It is an inspiration to know that we have a part in the work that is 
accomplishing so much in saving the lives of infants and making 
parents more intelligent in the care of their own health and that of 
their children. 

Marion C. Fussell, 

Head Worker.

INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

Treasurer's Report for Year 1921 



I present herewith the income and expense account in considerable 
detail, together with a balance sheet showing the financial condition 
of the Hospital. 

The year 1921 showed some improvement over 1920 in the Hospital 
expenses and the results of the appeal were, under all circumstances, 
most satisfactory. 

Additional gifts are badly needed for the Social Service Department 
and a home for nurses would be most helpful, but cannot be con- 
sidered without special gifts.

have seen satisfactory evidence of the approval and payment of all disbursements; that the balance 
called for by the cash book was on deposit in the bank or was in the office ; that the income earned 
during the year by investments held by the Hospital was properly accounted for; and that the 
financial statements submitted herewith are correct transcripts from the books of account and, in 
my opinion, correctly set forth the financial condition of the Hospital as at December 31st, 1921, 
and the results of its operations for the year ended at that date.

THE LADIES' AID COMMITTEE 



President. 
Mrs. William W. Caswell. 

Vice-President. 
Mrs. Homer B. Richardson. 

Secretary. 
Mrs. William Rodman Fat. 

Treasurer. 
Mrs. Horace Gray. 



Report of the Secretary 

During the past year the Ladies' Aid Committee has held its 
regular monthly meetings from November to April inclusive. The 
following people spoke at the various meetings: Miss Brown, Dr. 
Dunn, and Mr. Seymour. 

At the annual meeting in April the foregoing officers were elected 
to serve for one year. 

The amount netted by the Cabaret was the largest ever received, 
$3,186.22. Fifteen hundred dollars of this sum was voted to pay the 
salary of the Social Service Worker for one year. 

A Moving Picture Show was given in conjunction with the Welfare 
Committee of the Children's Hospital. $447.68 was realized from 
this source. This money went directly to the Hospital treasury and 
does not appear on our Treasurer's books. 

The gifts to the Hospital last year were twelve dozen babies' shirts; 
magazines for the Nurses' Library, and twenty -five chairs to be used 
at the clinics. Seven hundred dollars were spent to paint four wards 
and put terrazzo floors in the bathing rooms; twenty-five dollars 
were voted as an emergency fund to be used at Miss Ruggles' discre- 
tion, and four hundred dollars were set aside to be used by the 
Publicity Committee. 

Miss Clark organized a series of doll and toy sales that were 
exceedingly successful and made over $1,400.00 for the Hospital.

The Social Service Committee has held regular meetings during 
the year one hour before the meetings of the Ladies' Aid Committee. 

During the summer months, when the members of the Committee 
are unable to meet, the Chairman kept in touch with the activities of 
the department. 

The regular worker, Miss Carolyn Brown, resigned on March 14th, 
1921. Miss Anna C. R. Dunn volunteered her valuable services and 
ran the department until Miss Brown's successor could begin work.

Miss Marion C. Fussell was appointed head worker and began her 
work June 13th, 1921. She trained as a hospital nurse at the New 
England Baptist Hospital and, after that, had fourteen months' 
experience as visiting nurse with the Instructive District Nursing 
Association. During her nursing course, she had four months' 
training in Public Health Work, also, four months at the Infants' 
Hospital. 

The idea of the Committee in obtaining a worker with Miss Fussell's 
experience is to be able to give practical nursing instructions to the 
mothers in follow up work, as well as to meet the social needs of the 
case. Alice Homans,

WET-NURSE DIRECTORY 

1921 



The Wet-Nurse Directory, at 63 Binney Street, was established by 
Dr. Fritz Talbot in 1910 and has been under the direction of the 
Infants Hospital since 1914. 

The object of the Directory is to supply mother's milk to babies 
who are ill or who, for some reason, are deprived of their own mother's 
milk. It also affords an opportunity for unmarried or deserted 
mothers to keep their babies with them and earn good wages, one of 
the rules being that the baby shall not be separated from its mother. 

The mother and baby are examined by an Infants' Hospital physi- 
cian and no case is accepted unless it is found to be free from infectious 
and contagious diseases. 

The girls receive $8.00 a week and they supply us with drawn 
breast milk, which enables us to fill the many calls for breast milk 
and have varying amounts to be given away. All that is not ordered 
or sold by a certain time each day is sent to the Infants' Hospital or 
given to any hospital which wishes to send for it. In that way we 
have increased materially our opportunity for helping sick babies. 

The charge for a wet-nurse is $20.00 a week, if taken to the house, 
and $30.00 a week, if maintained at the Directory. Drawn breast 
milk at 25 cents an ounce may be obtained at the Directory. A room 
is especially equipped as a milk-room, where the milk is drawn and 
poured immediately into sterile bottles and iced. The Infants' 
Hospital is supplied with from 18 to 21 ounces a day. 

The expenses of the Directory are necessarily large, owing to the 
need of so much personal attention and training for the girls and the 
necessity of much nourishing food. 

When a wet-nurse is no longer able to nurse a baby, she is helped 
to find other work, usually through the society from which she came 
to us. 

During the year 1921, the Infants' Hospital was supplied with 
8,254 ounces of breast milk; The Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infir- 
mary, 1,432 ounces; The Boston Lying-in-Hospital, 390 ounces; one 



21 



private case, 758 ounces. This makes a total of 10,884 ounces, which 
is equivalent to $2,708.25. The number of ounces sold was 11,699, 
amounting to $2,924.75. 

Thirty nurses were admitted to the Directory and seven were 
rejected. 

Ninety calls for milk were filled and thirty-two nurses were placed 
on cases. 

The Maternity Homes and Maternity Wards in hospitals have 
been very co-operative in sending mothers to the Directory. 

An appeal was sent out by the Committee in March and met with 
quite a generous response, but our need for funds is urgent and i i 
your gifts to charities this year, we hope you will kindly remember 
the Directory for Wet-Nurses.

ANNOUNCEMENT 



As a matter of public policy and economy it was deemed wise 
to sell the building in which the Infants' Hospital has operated 
for past years to Harvard, to be used for the new School of 
Public Health. Satisfactory arrangements have been made to 
preserve the memorial character of the building and its features. 
A modern and more adequate building, less expensive than the 
present building, is being erected upon land of the Children's 
Hospital adjoining the old premises, where the work of the 
Infants' Hospital will hereafter be carried on under a working 
agreement with the Children's Hospital. This new building, like- 
wise a memorial to Thomas Morgan Rotch, Jr., will be owned and 
financed by the Infants' Hospital Corporation and operated at 
the expense of the Infants' Hospital through the agency of the 
Children's Hospital. The new building is practically completed 
and will be occupied by the Infants' Hospital in the near future. 



REPORT OF THE MEDICAL DIRECTOR 

For 1922 



There has been no essential change in the character of the work 
carried on by the Hospital during the past year. 

The statistics for the year show several differences which are 
of interest. The total number of babies treated was 132 less than 
in the preceding year. This was due entirely to the fact that the 
individual patient was kept a longer time. The total number of 
hospital days was 13,898, as compared with 13,429 for the pre- 
ceding year, and the average stay in the hospital was 22 instead 
of 18 days. The mortality was three per cent lower than in 1921. 

The high mortality rate of infants' hospitals, especially in sum- 
mer, is contributed to largely by the toxic effects due to large 
losses of water caused by diarrhoea. This condition is always 
serious and frequently fatal. The results obtained in the Hospital 
during the past year have been very gratifying. By administra- 
tion of very large amounts of glucose solution into the veins and 
water into the subcutaneous tissues, it has been possible to save 
the lives of a number of infants who might otherwise have suc- 
cumbed. 

The danger of ward infections in hospitals caring for infants 
has been mentioned in the hospital reports on a number of occa- 
sions. One of the great difficulties in treating young infants in 
hospitals is their susceptibility to intestinal and upper respiratory 
infections. In the usual type of ward it is a practical impossibil- 
ity to prevent such infection in susceptible infants. The only 
system which has been of preventive value is the so-called " unit 
systam " by which each patient is practically isolated from all 
others. Such an arrangement is possible only when the infants 
are separated by glass cubicles and allj instruments, clothes and 
utensils used in their care and treatment are kept separately. 



The new Infants' Hospital has been planned to furnish proper 
facilities for carrying out such precautions. By such means it 
should be possible to prevent ward infections to a considerable 
degree and thereby shorten materially the infant's stay in the 
hospital. 

It has recently been demonstrated that ultra-violet light is of 
considerable value in the treatment of rickets and certain forms 
of tuberculosis. This is still in somewhat of an experimental 
stage, but the results are promising. One of the great difficulties 
in using this form of treatment is the expense involved. Through 
the co-operation of the Ladies' Aid of the Infants' Hospital it has 
been possible to purchase a mercury vapor quartz light which 
will be used in connection with the work at the Hospital. 

It was mentioned in the report of last year that a combination 
between the interne staff of the Children's and Infants' Hospitals 
had been made. This arrangement has been very satisfactory. 
Each house officer is given a service of fifteen months' duration, 
6 months of which is spent at the Infants' Hospital. This insures 
having regularly men who have had adequate training in pediat- 
rics. 

Teaching has been done in the wards of the Infants' Hospital 
as heretofore. The Fourth Year students of the Harvard Medical 
School are on duty in the wards for one month. 

The work of the Medical Department has been greatly facili- 
tated by the thorough co-operation of the nursing and ad- 
ministrative departments.

After an examination of the books of the Infants' Hospital for the year ending 
December 31st, 1922, I hereby certify: that all cash shown to have been received has 
been accounted for ; that I have seen satisfactory evidence of the approval and payment 
of all disbursements ; that the balance called for by the cash book was on deposit in 
the bank or was in the office; that the income earned during the year by investments 
held by the Hospital was properly accounted for; and that the financial statements 
submitted herewith are correct transcripts from the books of account, and in my 
opinion, correctly set forth the financial condition of the Hospital as at December 31st, 
1922, and the results of its operations for the year ended at that date.

INFANTS' HOSPITAL 

Treasurer's Report for the Year 1922 



The year 1923 will be a most important one for the Infants' 
Hospital. The Hospital building has been sold to Harvard 
University for $325,000. A new building is under construction, 
and should be completed about the first of May, within a 
stone's throw of the old building and adjoining and connected 
to the Children's Hospital. A contract has been entered into 
whereby the Children's Hospital agrees to operate the Infants' 
Hospital and the Infants' Hospital has to pay the Children's 
Hospital the entire cost of operation. 

Dr. Oscar M. Schloss, our present Medical Director, Professor 
of Pediatrics in the Harvard Medical School and Visiting Phy- 
sician to the Children's Hospital, will remain in charge, so that 
the change will not be a change of method or treatment, but will 
be one in the line of economy and better service. On account of 
this economy and the added endowment resulting from the saving 
in the cost) of construction of the new hospital over the amount 
received from the sale of the old, we shall in 1924 find it necessary 
to raise from our appeal perhaps $35,000 instead of $45,000 in 
1923, and the new hospital will be better adapted to the care of 
infants than was the old. 

The Treasurer's Report for the year 1922 is an encouraging 
one. The income was over $6,000 larger than in 1921 owing to 
the greater popularity of the appeal. The expenses have been 
kept down and in certain departments have decreased so that 
instead of a deficit which we have had in four years from 1918 on, 
there is a balance of over $6,000 which has been used to make up 
deficits of the past four years, only a small deficit now remaining. 

One problem, however, is still unsolved, and that is a home for 
nurses. Most of our nurses are now boarding out, and when our 
new building is completed it will be necessary for all to board out. 
This is expensive and uneconomical in obtaining the best service. 
Such a, home, however, cannot be built unless additional funds are 
donated for this purpose. 

Philip Stockton, 
January 29, 1923. Treasurer.

There have been 132 less admissions than the previous year, 
with 469 more days' care ; this making an increase in the average 
days' stay a patient. There has been a decrease of 3% in the 
number of deaths. 

During the past three months there have been several resigna- 
tions from the Executive force, who have been offered positions 
elsewhere, and accepted, this owing to the changes to be made 
here in the spring. Other conditions remain about the same. 



13 

As usual much has been done for the Hospital by the Ladies' 
Aid Committee, a full account of which will be found in their 
report. The taxi fare fund given by them has been especially 
useful in sending home discharged babies. 

We again express our gratitude to all who have contributed 
time, money and services to the Hospital. 

Alice K. Ruggees, 

Superintendent.

REPORT OF THE SOCIAL SERVICE DEPARTMENT 

For the Year 1922 



During the past year there were 260 cases referred to this 
department, and of these 194 were actively followed. There 
were 1319 visits made to homes, relatives and interested agencies. 

The work of the department has been conducted by a full 
time worker and part time secretary. As in previous years, the 
department has had a pupil nurse for training in social work. 
Owing to her affiliation with, the hospital having been shortened 
to three months, her connection with the Social Service Depart- 
ment has also been necessarily shortened to two weeks instead of 
a month, as formerly. In this brief time it is impossible for her 
to gain more than a general idea of medical-social work. These 
nurses, however, have been interested and enthusiastic in their 
desire to be of service and have been of great assistance to the 
Department. 

During the month of July the work was curtailed owing to the 
Worker's absence on her vacation and no substitute being ap- 
pointed in her place. 

Our aim has been in all cases to visit the home previous to the 
patient's discharge from the hospital and arrange for the neces- 
sary care of the child; also to follow our cases as closely as 
possible immediately after discharge as we invariably find most 
can be accomplished in instructing and assisting the mother in 
that period. With our limited Staff it has been impossible to 
give close supervision to babies needing it over an extended period 
of time. We have therefore depended upon the Baby Hygiene 
Nurses in this city and Child Welfare Workers in neighboring 
towns, and have always received their generous interest and co- 
operation. 

There have come to us this year, as in previous years, babies 
whose home conditions are such that they cannot receive the 



15 

needed care on discharge and those without homes for whom our 
assistance has been asked in finding proper placement. With 
relation to such cases, eight in number, we wish to acknowledge 
the assistance rendered us by the Child Placing Agencies in 
placing these babies in supervised homes where there is assured 
good care. 

We are indebted to the Milk Fund who have added several of 
our babies to their list during the year. 

The interest and loyal support of the Social Service Committee 
of the Ladies' Aid, who have held their usual monthly meetings 
with the Worker, have been helpful and greatly appreciated. 

In closing we cannot place too much emphasis upon the sup- 
port and co-operation always extended us by our Medical Staff, 
Superintendent and Nurses. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Marion C. Fussei/l, 
Head Worker, Social Service Dept.

Treasurer 
Mrs. William A. Parker 



Report of the Secretary 

During the past year the Ladies' Aid Committee have held 
their regular meetings from May to October. Miss Fussell, Dr. 
Schloss and Mr. Seymour spoke at various meetings. At the 
annual meeting in April the foregoing officers were elected to 
serve for one year. 

The Ladies' Aid Committee have vastly increased their bank 
balance and also their expenditures. The tea given in conjunction 
with the Children's Hospital in January was financed entirely by 
contributions from members of the Ladies' Aid and the Welfare 
Association. The largest activity was the cabaret which this year 
took the form of an operetta written and produced by Mrs. Hen- 
dricks Whitman and managed by the usual cabaret committee 
headed by Mrs. Homer B. Richardson. This brought in the sum 
of $4,797.67, the largest amount yet reported, and we turned 
over to the Hospital Treasurer, $5,000.00, making up the dif- 
ference. 

The Boston Cat Club gave the proceeds of their annual show 
to this Hospital, amounting to more than $900.00. This is the 
largest sum they have ever realized and they are again presenting 
the proceeds of their show to the Hospital, the first time they 
have given twice to the same charity. 



17 

The 1897 Sewing Circle donated $140.00 and will do the same 
again next year. 

Three hat sales netted the Hospital about $800.00, and the 
annual doll sale this December brought in $981.71. 

The Ladies' Aid Committee have started a small business in 
children's bloomers and hats that they hope may in time become 
a steady source of revenue to the Hospital. 

The Ladies' Aid have paid the salary of the Social Worker, 
endowed a bed for a year ; paid for all materials used for Hospital 
supplies such as blankets, surgical gowns, garments, tape, web- 
bing, diapers, flannelette, mill cotton, sheeting, spreads ; given an 
illuminator for research work ; supplied magazines for the Nurses' 
Library; leaving a balance of $2,803.57 on January- 1.

During the past year, with the exception of the summer months, 
the Social Service Committee has held its regular meetings before 
the monthly meetings of the Ladies' Aid Committee. 

Miss Marion C. Fussell, who was appointed Head Worker in 
June, 1921, has shown most satisfactory results in the majority 
of cases. 

The Committee feels that in having obtained a worker who 
was equipped to give practical nursing instruction to the 
mothers as well as to administer to the social needs, it has added 
to the value of its services. 

Miss Fussell has sent in her resignation, to take effect January 
15, 1923. It is with much regret we accept this resignation. 

Alice Homans, 

Chairman Social Service Committee.

WET-NURSE DIRECTORY 
1922 



The Wet-Nurse Directory, at 63 Binney Street, was estab- 
lished by Dr. Fritz B. Talbot in 1910 and has been under the 
direction of the Infants' Hospital since 1914. 

The object of the Directory is to supply mothers' milk to 
babies who are ill or who, for some reason, are deprived of their 
own mother's milk. 

It also affords an opportunity for unmarried or deserted 
mothers to keep their babies with them and earn good wages, one 
of the rules being that the baby shall not be separated from its 
mother. 

The mother and baby are examined by an Infants' Hospital 
physician, and no, case is accepted unless it is found to be free 
from infectious or contagious diseases. 

The girls receive $8.00 a week and they supply us with drawn 
breast milk which enables us to fill many calls for milk and have 
varying amounts to be given away. All that is not ordered or 
sold by a certain time each day is sent to any hospital which wishes 
to send for it. In that way we have increased materially our 
opportunity for helping sick babies. 

The charge for 1 a wet-nurse is $20.00 a week, if taken to the 
home and $30.00 a week, if maintained at the Directory. Drawn 
breast milk may be obtained at the Directory at 25 cents an 
ounce. A room is especially equipped as a milk room, where milk 
is drawn and poured immediately into sterile bottles and iced. 
The Infants' Hospital is supplied with from 18 to 21 ounces a 
day. 

The expenses of the Directory are necessarily large, owing to 
the need of so much personal attention and training for the girls 
and the necessity of much nourishing food. 

When a wet-nurse is no longer able to nurse a baby, she is 
helped to find other work, usually through the society from which 
she came to us. 



23 

During the year 1922, there were sent out from the Directory 
36,374 ounces of breast milk; of this 8,266 ounces were given to 
the Infants' Hospital and individuals. 

Twenty-one nurses were admitted to the Directory during 
1922. Four were rejected for different reasons, mostly insuffi- 
cient milk. There were 108 calls for milk and 26 calls for nurses. 

The Maternity Homes and Maternity Wards in hospitals have 
actively co-operated with us in sending mothers to the Directory. 

An appeal was sent out by the Committee in March and was met 
with a generous response, but our need for funds is great, and in 
your gifts to charities this year, we hope you will remember the 
Directory for Wet-Nurses.
